2017 NCHC Early Departures

Below is a list of NCHC underclassmen who have decided to leave school early this offseason and sign NHL deals.

You can check out the carnage from 2016 here. Eleven underclassmen left the NCHC a year ago. At the time that was a record.

The 2017 offseason has now surpassed that with 12 underclassmen leaving the league early as of July 6. Check out College Hockey Inc.’s running list here for a look at all of college hockey.
