This past season, over 110+ NAPHL alumni played in the NAHL and over 225 NAPHL alumni played in the NCAA. In addition, a record-breaking total of 49 players from the NAPHL have been tendered to play in the NAHL for the upcoming 2019-20 season. During the past three years, 160+ NAPHL players have signed an NAHL tender or been drafted into the NAHL, which is a testament to the success of the NAPHL to NAHL Ladder of Development model.
