EHL Continues to Lead

USA Hockey Leader in Division II and III Placements

BOSTON, MA -- As we move our way through the 5th season of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), the data has once again been collected for this year’s freshmen class at the Division II and III collegiate levels. For the 3rd season in a row, the EHL continues to lead the way in Division II and III placements.

Nearly 1 in every 5 NCAA Division II and III freshmen this season played previously in the EHL (2016-17 season).

The EHL alone had 148 alumni making their NCAA DII and DIII debuts this season, which equals out to 19.60%. When you include the 4 alumni from the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP), the sub-division of the EHL, that percentage rises above 20%.

The EHL’s percentage was over 6% higher than its nearest junior hockey competitors (99, 13.11 percent), as well as more than 8% higher than U.S. Prep and High Schools (85, 11.26 percent). The EHL’s percentage is also much higher than any Canadian league.

“I give a lot of the credit to our coaches,” said Mark Kumpel, the EHL’s Director of Hockey Operations, and a former NHL player. “They’ve built a very strong network amongst the Division II and III schools, and it shows in our commitment numbers every season. It’s also important to note that our players aren’t just filling these rosters, but rather, they’re having strong impacts on the success in these programs. We’ve had over 25 alumni compete in the previous 2 Division III Frozen Fours, and we even had 1 alumni score the game-winning goal in the National Championship game.”
