USA Junior Hockey Ranks
Leagues by level of play:
1. USHL (Hands down top level of competition)
-Top couple teams in each league would compete vs. bottom 4 USHL teams easily
-The USHL of Division 3 hockey, best exposure for D3 schools.. Any D1 guys are usually very young in this league and move onto NTDP, USHL, USPHL, NAHL.
4. Big drop of for all other junior leagues
For exposure to Hockey East and Atlantic Hockey, USPHL is hands down number 1; for recruiters it is an easy hour drive... Whereas USHL/NAHL schools have to spend $$$$ to travel and watch. USPHL also offers many more showcase for schools.
In every league certain organizations are better than others, don't always believe what you hear.
-Sincerely, a player that's made his way around the junior ropes.
