USPHL Jersey Hitmen Classic

Oct. 17-21, 2024

Ice Vault Arena, Wayne, N.J. 


Every October, as the trees in the Northeastern U.S. are putting on an art show, the Jersey Hitmen Classic puts on a show to rival anything on the nearby Broadway in New York City. Teams from the NCDC, USPHL Premier and USPHL Elite will come together for this highlight event every year on the USPHL calendar, this year running Oct. 17-21 at the Ice Vault, a three-sheet arena featuring full-service restaurant, lounge and pro shop all on site. 

The Jersey Hitmen Classic this year serves as the second of three NCDC Showcase Series events, and the first on the East Coast. The Hitmen Classic will feature all 15 NCDC New England and Atlantic Division teams in action, providing NCAA scouts from across the country a chance to recruit some of the nation’s best Tier II players. The NCDC's 165+ NCAA commitments is a number sure to see an increase as the NCDC will field 21 teams this season. 

Scouts at the Hitmen Classic will see NCDC players putting their very best skate forward to impress potential future NCAA coaches, who have already seen how well NCDC players perform at the next level - there were more than 40 conference and team awards given to NCDC alumni at the NCAA Division I level in 2023-24.
