NCDC Teams Select 72 Prospects In 2020 Futures Draft

By Joshua Boyd /, 01/30/20, 4:30PM EST


On Jan. 30, the National Collegiate Development Conference - the tuition-free division of the United States Premier Hockey League, held its annual Futures Draft. 

See the complete results below and at

Most of the 12 teams for the 2020-21 season selected six players apiece. Through trades of draft picks and tenders, the Boston Junior Bruins selected eight players, and the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs and P.A.L. Jr. Islanders each selected five. 

The Philadelphia Hockey Club took part in its first NCDC draft, as they will be joining the NCDC after purchasing the NCDC franchise of the Boston Bandits last November. 

In the Futures Draft, NCDC teams are allowed to select players who will be of 16U age the following season, thus they selected a majority of 2004-born players this season, as well as select 2005’s. 

Players born between 2001 and 2003 are eligible to be selected in the NCDC Entry Draft on May 15. 

Players selected in the Futures Draft become Affiliate Players of the NCDC teams. 

This means that the NCDC team that selects a certain player sees great future potential for that player for their NCDC team in a season beyond the upcoming campaign. 

Being drafted is not binding for either team or player. It only ensures that the team that selected the player has the player’s rights within the league. 

Congratulations and best of luck to all of those selected in the 2020 NCDC Futures Draft!
