The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) has announced the rosters and schedule for the 2018 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament, which will be held from February 27-28 at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan, which includes two Wausau RiverWolves players.
Forwards Matt Irwin of Roseville Minn. and Jacob Rudloff of DePere have both been named, according to a RiverWolves news release. Irwin leads the RiverWolves in points with 46 this season.
The NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament is played in conjunction with the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. The event has quickly become one of the most highly-scouted events of its kind, with hundreds of junior, NCAA and NHL expected in attendance this season.
120 total players from the NA3HL will be spread among six teams, who will play in three games each during the event. The event will feature four teams that represent the eight divisions in the NA3HL. Two separate NA3HL Selects teams will compete as the fifth and sixth teams in the event. The Selects team rosters consist of players with birth years of 1999, 2000, or 2001.
