New York Hockey Journal's uncommitted series continues by analyzing the top uncommitted prospects from the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) who are playing in the North American Hockey League (NAHL). The NAHL is USA Hockey's only Tier II Junior A league. It has become popular among players who are in their final years of junior eligibility and are still chasing college commitments.
The league has collected record-breaking commitment numbers over the previous five years, and it appears to be on pace for another impressive season. However, even though many NAHL players have already made their college decisions during the 2021-22 campaign, several prospects remain to await opportunities.
On Feb. 8-9, the NAHL will host its annual Top Prospects event in Cranberry Township, Pa. Top Prospects is a heavily scouted event that showcases the league's best-uncommitted players.
Here, we look at the top-10 regional NAHL prospects who remain uncommitted and preview what type of impacts they might have on a Division 1 roster.
