The NAHL hosted a Supplemental Draft on Tuesday that consisted of 81 selections with each of the 27 teams receiving three picks.


Greenway's Ben Troumbly was selected 21st overall by Bismarck Bobcats. The St. Cloud State commit skated in 23 games last season with the Raiders registering 16 goals and 28 assists.

Former Duluth East defenseman Hunter Paine was selected 38th by the Corpus Christi IceRays. Paine spend last season in the USHL with the Des Moines Buccaneers.

The Minnesota Wilderness added one defenseman and two forwards. Selected 14th overall was d-man Evan Bushy who recorded 38 points for Thief River Falls last season.

Carter Self was selected 74th overall by Minnesota. He played last season with the BCHL with the Cowichan Valley Capitals tallying 12 goals and 25 assists.

They also added Mitchell Joss with the 76th pick. Joss played the preview season with the Winnipeg Blues of the MJHL posting 71 points.

Back on April 10th, the NAHL Board of Governors approved changes to the NAHL Player Procurement System due to unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, which prematurely ended the 2019-20 season and subsequent postponement of NAHL team Pre-Draft Evaluation Camps and NAHL Combines.

"The Supplemental Draft is necessary to serve as an additional outlet for teams to make decisions on how players performed in the 2019-20 season. A lot of time and effort has gone into scouting and recruiting. This way teams can make some decisions early,” said NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld. “Equally as important, the rescheduling of the NAHL Entry Draft was necessary to allow teams time to make decisions on how players perform at team tryout camps. Players develop over the summer and some of the best players in the NAHL are discovered through the tryout process."
