2023 NA3HL Top Prospects Tourney: Rosters/Schedule Released 

DALLAS, TX., January 20, 2023 — The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) have announced the rosters (including coaches) and tournament schedule for the 2023 Top Prospects Tournament that will be held on Monday and Tuesday, February 6-7, 2023, at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township, (outside of Pittsburgh) Pennsylvania. The NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins call the sports complex their practice facility.

The two-day annual Top Prospects Tournament (TPT), held in conjunction with the 2023 North American Hockey League (NAHL) Top Prospects Tournament, is one of the most highly scouted events of its kind with many scouts coming to attend this prestigious event from the junior hockey ranks, NCAA, American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) and the National Hockey League (NHL).

In addition to the five NA3HL teams (Central, East, Frontier, South and West Divisions), there will be one North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) 18U Top Prospects team that will also play in the event. The NAPHL 18U Top Prospects team will be a collection of the best 18U players from the NAPHL T1ER League teams. It is a unique opportunity for the NAPHL because no other youth league provides their players with this type of exposure, which will include all 31 NAHL teams and hundreds of NCAA and NHL scouts.

Alex Leaf will be representing the Great Falls Americans at this tournament.

“Alex is very deserving of this honor,” said Great Falls Americans Head Coach and General Manager, Greg Sears. “He is one of our most consistent players. It will be a good trip for him.”
