Re: Tier 3 Juniors

Usphl premier is terrible.. EHL has 17 teams (usphl premier has 60) and puts over 180 kids to ncaa d3. The usphl premier only puts up about 50 and there are 43 more teams..data doesn’t lie

D-3 NCAA is no great shakes. Take a Mass D-1 / C.C. H.S. player who skates on the first line and you have a D-3 kid. Sure they expect the kid to show-up as a 20 year old freshman but it's really not a great leap.
This is 100% true in the year 1994. Today you could not be more wrong. Look at any D3 roster and good luck finding any kids direct out of Mass High School.

Re: Tier 3 Juniors

Another who has a hard time reading. Of course no one shows up to play D-1 or D-3 hockey as an 18 year old. That was covered by the guy in "...they expect the kid to show-up as a 20 year old freshman."

For players aging out of tier 3 leagues like the EHL and USPHL Premier, about what percentage go ACHA versus NCAA?

Of the players who advance to NCAA teams from tier 3 juniors, are most of them depth players who don't get a regular shift on the NCAA teams?
Do any kids go from T3 to NCAA ??

There kids playing Teir 3 that didn’t start on their high school teams !
Roughly 40% of D2/D3 players come from tier 3 juniors.

click on this link to the EHL website: https://www.easternhockeyleague.org/commitments-2122

click on the xls icon for 2019-20 NCAA Division II/III Freshman Data

when the spreadsheet opens, use your skill with a spreadsheet to sort by league. Use your arithmetic skills to calculate that 39% of the NCAA II/III players are from tier 3 junior leagues.

The data is not just true for that season. The EHL has been advertising for years that 1 in 5 NCAA D3 players come from the EHL. This data is not in dispute even if you weren't aware of it. The question remains whether those 1 in 5 are mostly depth players and healthy scratches. Chime in if you know the answer.

Re: Tier 3 Juniors

Wonder what that number is if you take out NESCACs

Re: Tier 3 Juniors

Definitely different. The NESCACs and other highly selective LACs are more likely to take direct-from-prep players and tier 2 juniors. Still, there are some tier 3 players headed to NESCACs too. Anyone know if those are mostly A-band players?

Re: Tier 3 Juniors
