The National Collegiate Development Conference, the USPHL’s Tier II Tuition-Free Hockey League, will present its 2023 NCDC All-Star Game Series on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, at the Foxboro Sports Center in Foxboro, Mass.
Held after the conclusion of another great event at Foxboro Sports Center – the South Shore Kings Presidents Day Showcase – the NCDC All-Star Game Series will feature two games. One All-Star Game will feature the “Best of the Best” from across the NCDC. Making its return is the popular NCDC Young Guns game, featuring a mix of current, younger NCDC players, as well as other top athletes affiliated with NCDC organizations at the Midget or Junior levels.
Roster selection is currently underway and a roster announcement is coming soon, as coaches have been going through a nomination process since December. Each All-Star team will feature 21 players – generally 12 forwards, six defensemen and three goaltenders.
The NCDC “Young Guns” All-Star Game will kick off at 11 a.m. and the “Best of the Best” game will begin at 1:30 p.m.
The NCDC, founded in 2017, has sent more than 150 players to the NCAA Division I ranks and more than 600 to college hockey in total. Seven former NCDC players have been selected in the NHL Entry Draft, including a North American Tier II high of three drafted directly out of the league in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.
The All-Star Game Series will be a first-class event, featuring hospitality and exclusive viewing areas for NHL and college scouts and coaches. Updated line charts will be available for all teams, both in print and in the RinkNet PressRoom app. Locker room areas will be open to scouts and coaches for player conferences following each game. League staff will be on hand to assist in any way needed.
For those who cannot join us in person, both games will be broadcast live on HockeyTV.com.
We welcome all NHL and college coaches and scouts as well as families, friends and fans to join us at the 2023 NCDC All-Star Game. Admission to the event at Foxboro Sports Center is free of charge.
