ISU Psychology Night at Flying Aces Hockey, March 2
Friday, March 2 is Department of Psychology Night at the Central Illinois Flying Aces Hockey Game, where the USHL’s Flying Aces take on the Fargo Force at Grossinger Motors Arena in downtown Bloomington. All students, faculty, staff, and their guests are invited to attend the game and socialize while watching the future stars of the NHL.
The Flying Aces are a member of the only Tier 1 junior hockey league in the country, the United States Hockey League (USHL). Comprised of 17 teams divided into a nine-team Eastern Conference and an eight-team Western Conference, the USHL is a gateway to college hockey for most of the league’s players. In addition to serving as one of the primary feeding systems for college hockey, the USHL also develops emerging NHL talent. Each June, there are between 30-40 current USHL players who are selected at the NHL Draft. With notable league alumni such as Patrick Sharp, Johnny Gaudreau, and Auston Matthews, among others, the USHL puts its players on the fast track to immediate success at both the college and NHL levels.
