MIDDLETOWN, NJ -- The New Jersey 87's, proud members of the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) are proud to announce an affiliation agreement with the New Jersey Titans (NAHL) for the 2017-2018 season. The agreement between the two clubs is another perfect example of the USA Hockey Ladder of Development and dovetails perfectly with the New Jersey 87's mission statement of athletic and scholastic development as well as player advancement.
Since joining the NAHL, the Titans have done a tremendous job at the Middletown Sports Complex, committing 14 players to NCAA Division I hockey over the past 2 seasons.
”Over the past year, our ownership group has been able to watch from top to bottom the inner workings of the NAHL Titans. Craig Doremus [Head Coach] and his staff have done a tremendous job in recruitment, development and placement of their players. Having this affiliation will allow for a dynamic synergy between both organizations. Our goal will be to mirror their club. It will give our players a first hand experience of the NAHL, and will allow for young talent to develop," said 87's general manager Adam Houli.
With both teams in the same building, the 87's are hitting the ground running as they embark on their inaugural season in the EHLP.
