On NHL Hockey Ice

So you think you’d like to skate on the NHL hockey ice?
Well, there are many ways to get to skate on NHL ice these days. NHL franchised hockey teams have many different promotions to facilitate your use of their ice. Playing professional hockey on NHL ice is a different story.

Play Pro Hockey – NHL Entry Draft

How does one get to play pro hockey, specifically nhl hockey? To be recruited to the NHL entry draft, NHL prospects are watched and chosen from the CHL (ohl, whl, qmjhl); Europe; junior hockey leagues; college hockey leagues from NCAA hockey; highschool and minor hockey; CJHL, USHL, and NAHL. Those players who attract the attention of NHL scouts have extensive hockey training from numerous hockey drills and hours on and off ice. They’ve attended hockey camps and hockey schools, and have superior hockey skills. Some will have to prove themselves in the AHL or other minor pro hockey leagues like the ECHL first.

Ice Hockey Goals
If your goal is to play ice hockey on an NHL team, then it’s likely that you’ve already put in some effort, and hockey teams may want you too. Their scouts have to find you though.

Do you know which are the best hockey leagues to play in to be scouted?

What would it take for you to play at the pro hockey level, NHL, AHL, or even the major junior hockey or junior A level? A lot! Read pages and comments in this Web site. Ask us your question(s).

  1. Amy says

    My name’s Amy and I play high school jv hockey(8th grade). More people than I’d like don’t like me playing high school hockey. Boys are mad at a girl that made the team, and my parents are nervous about me playing in case I might get hurt. But the fact is, I love playing hockey and I don’t want to quit just because of peer pressure. I follow the NHL pretty much every day for my favorite teams standing(Detroit Red Wings). Anyways, back to the point. I have to admit that I’m not the great at a lot of things in hockey, but I strive to change that and get better. I want to get better so in junior year I get onto the varsity team. It’s hard with all these challenges in the way of my goal to be get into the NHL. I lack the dermination to exercise off the ice and eat better. How can I get and keep that dermination that escapes my grasp everytime I try to get hold? I love hockey as much as the NHL players, that I’m sure of, but I need the skill to reach my dream. How can I get and keep the dermination and get over all the challenges and people that are trying to stop me?

      Once you begin a workout regimen it’ll be difficult to stop. Consult a physician first to discover limits for your age. You have to get into it. It’s addictive once you do. There are significant opportunities for female hockey players. Go get ‘em!
