The NCAA College Hockey Route

For more than 100 years, college hockey has been a breeding ground for outstanding hockey players and people. Today college hockey players make a bigger impact in the NHL than ever before, with more than 30% of the league coming from the U.S. college ranks.

NCAA Division I men's hockey is made up 60 member schools across six conferences: Atlantic Hockey, Big Ten, ECAC Hockey, Hockey East, the NCHC and the WCHA. The member teams range as far west as Alaska and as far south as Alabama.

There are a number of reasons to consider the college hockey path:
