What is the Northern States Junior Hockey League?
The Northern States Junior Hockey League was created to develop and promote amateur junior A hockey players who have the ability and desire to play at the college level. The organization’s goal is to produce athletes that are committed to excellence in academics as well as athletics. All teams, coaches, and officials are committed to be positive influences that uphold a high standard of integrity and discipline. By providing a high level of competition, NSHL players will be able to contribute and succeed at the next level of hockey and education.
