The 2022 NA3HL Entry Draft will take place April 20, 2022, at 1pm (central). The Power is holding a Draft Party at King Pin Bowl and Ale House, 1022 S. Main Street, West Bend.
“The Milwaukee Power intends to draft players that will fill our roster later in the year after NAHL camps and NAHL rosters are selected and finalized, said Kevin Marion, Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager. “We’ve had a great spring, signing 15 players to tender contracts. We could have up to 15-17 returning players so we are poised for success this season. We additionally have 7 draft picks and we’re looking to fill those slots with the best upside potential for our roster,” added Marion.
The Power staff is optimistic they will have an extremely strong, competitive roster with the early combination of returners and tenders and upcoming draft picks.
“We’re looking to add to an already well-established roster in this year’s draft,” said Matt Roadhouse, Director of Player Development. “We have an extensive draft board put together by our staff with both local and national talent options, and we’re excited to add some of these names to the Power roster,” added Roadhouse.
Filling all positions with top talent is key to the Power’s goal of being a top contender in the division.
“I always look to build from our net out in establishing solid goaltending, upgrading our defense and establishing powerful forwards, which will be our key for success in this tough central division,” said Marion.
