Most Influential Colleges in Hockey Today

Most Influential Colleges in Hockey Today

Find the colleges and universities that have the biggest impact in hockey based on the influence of their alumni in hockey. See which schools have proven histories of attracting and cultivating some of the most influential athletes today.

The best colleges and universities for hockey are largely located in states with notoriously frigid winters. In fact, every single one of these top 25 college athletics programs is located in a cold-weather American state like Massachusetts, Minnesota, or Michigan. The University of Wisconsin–Madison, the University of North Dakota, and Boston College top the list of destinations for NCAA hockey players. Wisconsin–Madison ranks the highest on the strength of the Canadian National team’s all-time scorer, Dany Heatley, as well as three-time Stanley Cup champion and Hockey Hall of Famer Chris Chelios and Olympic Gold Medal goalie Curtis Joseph.
