NCDC Player DITR Analytics Rankings out for 10/20 #DITRyDozen +2
What started as a concept to keep the Northeast Hockey Talent in the Northeast where more than 1/2 of the NCAA teams reside, ECAC, Hockey East & the Atlantic Hockey Conference conferences to name a few, has done a fairly good job of keeping local talent close.
Not getting the USA Hockey blessing on their financial model was a negative blow to truly calling themselves Tier 2 but nothing strong programs the likes of the Jr. Bruins, Islanders Hockey, NJ Hitmen & South Shore Kings cannot survive (and thrive).
While it is good bar talk on how the NAHL and the NCDC compare overall (I still think the NAHL is deeper in the talent pool and with 3 East teams being strong this year (NJ Titans, NE Generals and undefeated Philadelphia Rebels) it remains to be seen how the two leagues co-exist.
DITRyDozen+2 goalies are below.

About The Author
Russ has been a "stat-aholic" for about 10 years that has focused his efforts on High School and Prep School hockey in the last few years. His initial rankings got such great response he started a blog that became DITRGuide.com and now evolved to DITRHockey.com. This year we plan on expanding the service to become a complete analysis source for coaches, scouts, players and every other sports fan for schoolboy hockey in the NorthEast AND MidWest. Using available stats, we have developed some weighted and hybrid analysis that is not meant to be the "end all" ranking but a place to identify the true DITR Hockey players so coaches/scouts have a tool to find those "hidden gems" that make a recruiting class complete.
