The 2019 NABHC Men’s A/B and Women’s A kick off this weekend in Pennsylvania and this is quickly shaping up to be an interesting tournament. In looking at the schedule for the weekend, one can’t help but notice who isn’t playing this year, which will leave the door wide open for a potential new champion in all divisions.
Another impressive field will take the floor in the Men’s A/B divisions this weekend, and this year you can expect some fierce competition because there are some heavy hitters who are not in attendance. Confirmed teams include:
- GS Indians
- GS Warriors
- LA Barrons
- Jersey Fresh
- Barrie Flyers
Noticeably absent are the 2018 champion, Niagara War Pigs and the always competitive Boston Saints. With those two teams missing, it’s anyone’s game, and we suggest keeping your eye on the Pittsburgh Gods, Buffalo Fusion, Ottawa Godfathers, and the Barrie Flyers.
We’re also very excited about how the Women’s A Division will shake out. The 2018 champion Happy Endings return to defend their crown against a competitive field. Confirmed Teams include:
- Red Foxes
- Happy Endings
- Red Foxes
- Lez Rage
The Happy Endings probably come in as the favourite this weekend however, we know they will have their hands full with the likes of the Cupcakes, Atlantic Crush, and the Norstars. The one glaring absence this year is the 2018 runner up, Ottawa Blackouts.
The North American Ball Hockey Championships takes place March 22-24, 2019 with games being played at the Sportsplex in Feasterville-Trevose, PA as well as the NERC in Philadelphia, PA. For more details CLICK HERE.
