DID YOU KNOW?

College hockey is creating a bigger impact in the National Hockey League and the IIHF more than ever before.  At every turn, highlight reels are filled with unbelievable plays from former college players like Cale Maker, Adam Fantill, Cole Caufield, Kent Johnson, Jeremy Swayman, the Hughes brothers, Owen Power, TJ Oshie, Trevor Zegras - and on and on!

In most recent years, the NHL Draft has seen on average more than 60 current or future college players hear their names selected to the podium on draft day. The 2016 NHL Draft featured a record 11 NCAA players selected in the 1st Round, and the 2019 NHL Draft saw the most NCAA picks in 12 years. In 2021, five of the top 10 picks came from the college ranks for the first time in NHL Entry Draft history. The future looks brighter and brighter. 

College hockey now represents one the largest suppliers of talent to the NHL and is in short, the fastest growing development path for the NHL!
