“I would like to thank my family for all they have done for me” stated Zhong. “I also would like to thank all of my teammates and coaches, particularly head coach Joe Coombs and the entire Rebels organization for all of their support these past two years” concluded Zhong.

“I am very happy for Peter” said Rebels head coach Joe Coombs. “He has been a solid part of our organization for two years. ASU is getting a quality person and player” stated Coombs.

NAHL has monumental day at 2018 NHL Draft

It was a banner day and one the NAHL will long remember as the 2018 National Hockey League (NHL) Draft wrapped up its second day on Saturday, June 23rd at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

In all, nine players that play or have previously played in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) were taken in the draft. It is the most players taken with NAHL experience since the 2010 NHL Draft when the NAHL had 16 players with NAHL experience selected, which included those from the NTDP team when they were members of the league until 2009.

“This is part of the continuing evolution of the North American Hockey League. Players are getting more exposure, more opportunities for advancement, and as a result more and more of them are worthy of consideration by NHL teams during the draft,” said NAHL Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “Having our coaches at the event was a great experience for everyone and we are thrilled at how the weekend went. We continue to see incredible numbers of NHL scouts at our events and because our players are competing at such a high level, we have been able to enjoy continued success at the NHL Draft. We congratulate all those players selected.”

The list of those selected included Lone Star Brahmas goalie Mitchell Gibson, who was the NAHL Goaltender and Rookie of the Year this past season. Gibson was the first American-born goaltender selected in the 2018 NHL Draft when the Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals selected him #124 overall in the 4th Round.

“I knew Washington was a possibility, but you never know. It really is a dream come true. After this past year, I had a lot of confidence in my game and myself. I was real excited to get an opportunity with Lone Star in the NAHL this year,” said Gibson, who attended the draft with his parents.

The 6’1/186 lbs. native of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, who is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Harvard University, tied an NAHL single-season record with 11 shutouts in 2017-18. Gibson also finished the regular season leading in the NAHL in goals against average (1.59) and save percentage (93.5%), which were both the lowest numbers in the league since the 2014-15 season. He was also 2nd in wins with 26 and played in the 2018 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for one of two NAHL Selects teams.  The last goalie to win both the NAHL Goaltender of the Year and NAHL Rookie of the Year honors in the same season was current Winnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, who did it in 2011-12 with the Odessa Jackalopes.

In the 7th round, Janesville Jets forward Jakov Novak heard his name called by the Ottawa Senators with the 188th overall pick in the 7th round. The NAHL Most Valuable Player and Forward of the Year from the 2017-18 season put together a remarkable season for the Jets. Novak, who is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Bentley University in the fall, led all NAHL players in scoring during the regular season with 73 points in 56 games played. That included 32 goals, which also tied for the NAHL lead. He also led the NAHL with a +41 rating during the regular season, showing his talent at both ends of the ice. Novak (6’3/200) was also selected to and played in the 2018 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, where he improved his NHL Draft stock by recording four points in two games for one of the two NAHL Selects teams. In his two-year NAHL career, he has recorded 101 points in 108 career regular season games.

“I’m honored to be part of such an unbelievable organization and beyond excited for what the future holds,” said Novak. “Honestly, I’m at a loss for words. I’m super excited and can’t wait to get things going. Training camp starts Monday.”

Janesville Jets Owner and President Bill McCoshen, who is also the NAHL’s Chairman of the Board, attended the Draft and offerered his thoughts about Novak getting drafted, as well as, the NAHL’s big day. “You may not finish here, but it is a great place to start and increase your development and move on. It is obvious that players in the NAHL are getting noticed. I think the level of our coaching is a main reason more and more guys are getting committed to NCAA schools and drafted by NHL teams.”

“When Jakov was selected I cheered. To have a kid like Jakov develop like he did in a one-year period was incredible. His development was spectacular. He put in the work off the ice to get stronger and faster and everything worked,” said McCoshen.

Rebels announce relocation to Jamestown, New York

The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced that the Philadelphia Rebels have relocated their membership to Jamestown, New York, where they will continue to play in the NAHL’s East Division during the 2018-19 season.

“With now having a nice balance of six teams in our East Division this was an important evolution and step for the Rebels organization to continue their tradition of providing an elite level junior hockey opportunity for players and exposure to NCAA and NHL scouts based in the Eastern part of the United States,” said NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld.

The team will play out of the Northwest Arena as city and rink officials announced a new eight-year deal to bring the Rebels membership to Jamestown in a press conference on June 12th. The Rebels have spent the past three seasons playing in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area.

“Jamestown has all the necessities to operate a successful NAHL team, including a great arena, board, staff, fan base, and community support,” said Rebels owner Ken Dennis. “We are in this for the players. We need people to come out and help and who want to be part of the community.”

“What a great day, what an awesome time to be in Jamestown,” said Jamestown Center City Development Corporation co-president David Leathers. “For the arena, we’re extremely excited to announce the return of top-tier junior hockey to the Jamestown area and to the Northwest Arena.”

The Rebels will be playing in the same league that was once occupied by the Jamestown Ironmen from 2011-13, and Rebels head coach Joe Coombs knows that the talent will be fun to watch from the first puck drop.

“For the casual fan it will be better, it will be quicker that’s for sure. It will be a quicker game,” said Coombs, who has spent the past five seasons coaching for the organization. “The true hockey fan will know the difference very quickly. We are excited about our new home and I think fans will really enjoy the product on the ice.”

When looking back at some of the players that he has been fortunate to coach, Coombs mentioned Kristofers Binduls, who spent the 2015-16 season in the NAHL with Aston before heading to Lake Superior State University and then inking a deal with the Washington Capitals.

“We’ve been lucky the last few years to have some world-class players,” Coombs said. “I don’t know if it is every year that we get those type of players. I’d love to, that would be great.”

Dennis said that the Rebels main camp will be held at the arena July 6, 7 and 8. He also said they are looking for local people to volunteer to be billet families to house players during the season.
