OKLAHOMA CITY – The North American Hockey League announced rosters for the 2023 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament Thursday, which include Warriors forwards William Lawson-Body and Brendan Williams, defenseman Garrett Horsager, goaltender Cameron Korpi and head coach Garrett Roth.
Lawson-Body, Williams, Horsager and Roth will represent the South Division’s Black Team and Korpi will keep the crease for the East Division’s Blue Team
The number of players each NAHL team is sending to the tournament is based on each team’s winning percentage within their group as of January 8, 2023. Only those NAHL players without an NCAA commitment are eligible to participate in the 2023 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, except for those who have been identified by NHL Central Scouting as prospects for the 2023 NHL Draft. Lawson-Body, Williams and Horsager have not announced commitments; Korpi is committed to Western Michigan University and recently named the Number-31 ranked North American goaltender for the 2023 NHL Draft. Each team is comprised of 22 players (13 forwards, 7 defensemen, 2 goalies) for a total of 88 players.
The NAHL Top Prospects Tournament is one of the most highly scouted events of its kind, featuring almost every NHL team and NCAA Division-I school. It continues to provide the hundreds of NHL and NCAA scouts in attendance with a look at the best uncommitted players the NAHL has to offer, as well as some potential NHL Draft picks. It is an important part of the NAHL event model, which is inclusive of the NAHL Showcase in September and the NAHL Robertson Cup National Championship in May.
The NAHL Top Prospects Tournament will take place February 6-7 at the UPMC Hamot Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania and will be streaming on HockeyTV.
