Is this league that bad? Scores lopsided kid leading scoring averaging 3 points a game. How much better is EHL
NA3 is way behind USPHL Premier & EHL.
Oh goodness, now USPHL Premier is considered good hockey?? What does that make NCDC? Best League, Best Coaches, Best Players? HA! Oh, please, outside of some of the younger commits in that league, most of those players are on par with the NAHL3 talent.
As with everything else in hockey you have to look at the program and not the league. There are excellent programs in the NA3HL and in the USPHL Premier and in the EHL that move players on to the next level, whether that is the NCDC, NAHL or NCAA D3. There are also garbage programs in each of those leagues that are no better than JV HS hockey. Do your homework and make sure your player goes to the right program.
