The United States Hockey League, along with its member clubs, announced today the 30-man protected and affiliate lists for the 2017-18 season. The lists indicate players that have been invited by USHL teams, but not all players invited to preseason camps are included. Today also marked the first day that Injured Reserve can be utilized.
Member clubs must make necessary drops to get to their 23-man protected list by October 3, 2017 at 6:00 PM (CST) to the league office, as well as USA Hockey. 23-man protected lists must adhere to regular season roster regulations, which include:

Both 30-man protected and affiliate lists are eligible to play in USHL preseason games including the 2017 USHL Fall Classic in Cranberry Township, PA from September 27-October 1.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 16th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2017-18. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in five consecutive NHL Drafts, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
