About NAHL
Celebrating its 50th season in 2024-25, the NAHL is the oldest and one of the largest junior hockey leagues of its kind in the United States and one of only two USA Hockey-certified leagues that operate under the free-to-play model.  The NAHL is also one of the best in the world at advancing players to NCAA and professional hockey.

With 349 NCAA commitments so far during the 2023-24 season, the league has set a new standard with 300+ NCAA commitments in each of the last eight seasons. That also includes 270 NCAA Division I commitments this past season. In addition, six players with NAHL ties were listed in the NHL Central Scouting Final Rankings for the 2024 NHL Draft.

About USA Hockey National Team Development Program
In 1996, USA Hockey launched a new initiative called the National Team Development Program, originally based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In March of 2015 the USA Hockey Foundation purchased Compuware Arena (now USA Hockey Arena) in Plymouth, Michigan, which is the home of the NTDP. The program is composed of two teams – the U.S. National Under-17 and Under-18 Teams. The Under-17 Team, which will be visiting New Mexico, competes in the United States Hockey League and also participates in three international events annually. The U.S. National Under-18 Team’s schedule includes games against NCAA Division I & III opponents, contests versus USHL teams, as well as competition in three international tournaments.
