Each month for the rest of the season the GMHL will be highlighting a list of alumni from the league who have advanced to higher levels of hockey following playing in the GMHL. Advancement is a key factor in the development level of the GMHL and is put at the forefront of the leagues principles. This month we will be listing those alumni from the GMHL who are playing in the Federal Prospects Hockey League (FPHL).

The FPHL is the first level of professional hockey in North America and the starting point of many player’s minor professional careers.

The GMHL has become the league of choice for the FPHL when selecting players for the upcoming season. Over 25% of all the players in the league were selected out of GMHL programs. There are currently 44 active GMHL alumni on FPHL rosters. Prior to this season, 93 players had been signed from the GMHL to the FPHL. It has established the GMHL as a proven pathway to minor-pro hockey.

In addition, two of the ten FPHL clubs have GMHL affiliates for development and call-up basis.
