The United States Hockey League will hold the fifth annual USHL Combines this spring and summer at the Arctic Ice Arena, in Orland Park, Illinois. During the months prior to the Combines, interested players are encouraged to fill out an online questionnaire to insure USHL Player Development is aware of your interest in attending.
Players who are invited to participate in the Combines will have been pre-screened and scouted by USHL Player Development staff. Participating players will have the opportunity to showcase their skills while playing in a minimum of four (4) games in front of USHL coaches and scouts, as well as NCAA coaches.
Invitees will also be subjected to off-ice physical and cognitive testing. There will also be classroom presentations to help players better understand what it takes to play in the USHL. For those with ’96, ’97, and ‘98 birth years, this will be your last opportunity to be seen prior to the USHL Draft. For the ’99 - ’00 birth years, this is your first opportunity to make a statement in front of all the USHL teams.
