|Earlier this week NewEdge Hockey Development Academy’s owner and Professional Skills Coach Rob Sedia accepted the Northeast Region Scouting position for the USHL’s Cedar Rapids RoughRiders. Coach Sedia will also work directly and indirectly with the North American Hockey League’s (NAHL) New Jersey Titans. The United States Hockey League (USHL) is the highest level of Junior Hockey in the United States.|
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the 2021-22 season was the USHL’s 19th season as the nation’s only Tier I junior hockey league. The USHL had 51 players selected at the 2020 NHL Draft, marking the third-straight season with 50-or-more USHL players selected in the NHL Draft. More than 800 league alumni are currently on NCAA Division I rosters, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.

“It is an honor to be affiliated with the USHL. I am really looking forward to working with Coach Carlson and the Cedar Rapids team as well as the NJ Titans. Helping to connect the dots for the region’s top talent and the best junior leagues is very exciting. NEHDA will be restructuring our Elite Development Programs with the USHL in mind.”
