This is the 2013-14 North American 3 Hockey League. This is the league's 4th season.

The league's 21 teams played in four unbalanced geographically aligned divisions.  All teams with the exception of the teams in the South Division played 48 games, the South Division teams played 40 or 45 games.  The league was suposed to have 22 teams playing this season; but as the season was getting ready to start the McKinney, Texas franchise tried to postpone its first few games citing a lack of players and eventually having to cancel its season.

In March 2014, the league announced that it would absorb the teams from the American West Hockey League in a merger and those teams would form the Frontier Division for the 2014-15 season.  The league had already announced plans for expansion to California and Arizona, which would comprise the Western Division  with four franchises one in the Phoenix area, one in the San Jose area and two teams in Southern California.
