Romeoville event enters final day

The second NAPHL event of the season moves into its final day at Canlan Ice Sports in Romeoville, IL. Several teams have taken advantage of the event, winning multiple games and in some cases making up for a rough start in Blaine. Others have found it tough sledding after having a good first event in Blaine. It all makes for standings that are very tight after two events.
The final day of competition is on Monday and several scouts have stuck around to watch the action as the final day offers several enticing match-ups.
