What is a Pre-Draft Showcase?
The objective of these events is for our hockey staff to identify players to be drafted in the NAHL Entry Draft, tendered, and/or be invited to our Main Selection Camp where we will select our roster for the season. Additionally, these events are outstanding ways for younger players to also get on the radar of our hockey staff for the future eventually leading to potential opportunities with our team. Pre-draft showcases/prospect camps are the best way to get in front of multiple NAHL teams and maximize ice time and exposure.
