By Brett Bruneteau, 01/31/17, 6:45PM EST


The National Collegiate Development Conference, which is the USPHL's tuition-free division that will drop its inaugural puck in September 2017, held its first-ever Futures Draft today in Boston, Mass.

The 11 NCDC teams picked six players each, with 2001 and 2002 birth years, as future prospects.

"Things got real today for the NCDC," said USPHL Commissioner Jeff Nygaard.  "There has been a couple years of planning and hundreds of discussions to get the NCDC set for launch.  Today we executed our first major endeavor and there will be many more in the future.  We have a lot of great operators in this division and the enthusiasm for this draft, and this level of play, is off the charts."
