June 30, 2024

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) is proud to announce that three players with NAPHL ties were selected in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft, which was held on June 28-29 at Sphere in Las Vegas, Nevada, and hosted by the Vegas Golden Knights.

The three NAPHL players taken in the 2023 draft follows a year when five players were selected in the 2023 NHL Draft. Overall, 17 former NAPHL players have been selected in the last three NHL Drafts.

The NAPHL is entering its 16th season in 2024-25 with teams at the 18U, 16U, 15U, and 14U USA Hockey Tier I and Tier II youth levels. The success of teams on the National stage, as well as, the success of NAPHL players at the next levels of hockey, is further proof that the NAPHL is redefining exposure and has elevated itself to one of the premier training grounds for development and opportunity.

In addition to the 23 players who were drafted in the 2024 NAHL Draft back on June 15th, 74 players who played in the league during the 2023-24 season signed NAHL tenders for the upcoming 2024-25 season. In total, a total of 97 NAPHL T1ER players were either drafted or tendered by NAHL teams for the upcoming 2024-25 season.

The three NAPHL players selected in the 2024 NHL Draft were:

Colin Ralph, D, CarShield AAA 16U (2021-22) Round 2, #48, St. Louis Blues

Austin Moline, D, Northstar Knights 16U (2020-21) Round 7, #205, Philadelphia Flyers
