Franchise history
1996–present USNTDP

The National Team Development Program (NTDP) was started in 1996 by USA Hockey as a way to identify elite ice hockey players in the country under the age of 18, and centralize their training.[1] There are two teams in the program, an Under-17 squad and an Under-18 squad. The teams are both based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The stated goal of the NTDP is "to prepare student-athletes under the age of 18 for participation on U.S. National Teams and success in their future hockey careers. Its efforts focus not only on high-caliber participation on the ice, but creating well-rounded individuals off the ice."[1] While enrolled in the NTDP, players stay with billet families and attend either Huron High School or Pioneer High School.[1]

The Under-17 and Under-18 teams play games domestically against opponents in the United States Hockey League (Under-17 and Under-18 teams) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (Under-18 team), as well as three international tournaments for each team. The NTDP teams have also competed in the North American Hockey League in the past.[2]
