About the NCDC
The National Collegiate Development Conference of 2020-21 will feature 13 teams coming from some of the most highly-acclaimed hockey organizations on the East Coast.
NCDC organizations not only have sent nearly 150 players to the NCAA Division 1 ranks in the league’s first three seasons, but they also feature alumni in the NHL, including Jack Eichel, Charlie Coyle, Noah Hanifin, Connor Clifton, Colin White, John Marino and 2019 Stanley Cup Champion Zach Sanford.
The NCDC produced more than 130 NCAA commitments during the 2019-20 season. Out of a 50-game schedule, nearly one-quarter of each NCDC team’s games are played at scout-friendly multi-team showcases within the compact NCDC footprint. Three NCAA Division I and seven NCAA Division II/III conferences share the NCDC’s geographic area, making it even easier for college coaches and scouts to watch and meet players in person.
Full-time, professional coaching staffs in conjunction with first-class facilities and player amenities present a college and pro hockey atmosphere within each of the 13 organizations. Learn more at USPHL.com/NCDC
