It’s been 5 years officially now since we have had two AAA teams in St Louis. During this time the CarShield Hockey program has won 3 NAPHL Regular Season Championships, 1 NAPHL Playoff Championship, 2 Missouri Hockey State Championships and earned a 3rd Place Medal at the 2018 USA Hockey National Championships!
Let’s take a look at where some of our alumni have landed over these last 5 year. Since the 2016 season there has been a total of 18 NCAA hockey commitments (7 NCAA division 1 commitments). 23 players have signed NAHL tenders, multiple NAHL & USHL draft picks, 1 USHL Clark Cup Champion, 1 EHL MVP & Scoring Champion, 9 ACHA D1 commitments, and 20 ACHA Division 2/3 commitments!
Along with those accomplishments CarShield Hockey has built a strong competitive reputation around the country. As a result, the program has been invited to some of the top events and league showcases including the USHL Fall Classic, USHL Winter Classic, High Performance League showcases, Shattuck St Mary’s showcase, Chicago Mission Labor Day showcase and of course NAPHL showcases!
CarShield Hockey has recently accepted a position in the new Under Armour Hockey League, which they will participate in along with the North American Prospects Hockey League. The CarShield organization has just signed a new 5-year partnership with CarShield LLC and will continue to provide a home for the elite level hockey player in St. Louis. For the upcoming 2020-21 season, the CarShield Hockey Staff will include 9 coaches with Professional hockey experience, 2 NHL Alumni, 6 coaches with NCAA Division 1 experience, 2 coaches with NCAA D3 experience, and 5 coaches with ACHA D1 experience. Expect coaching announcements in the coming week.
We would like to thank our sponsor CarShield LLC for their continued support throughout the St. Louis community!

Stay safe everyone and hope to see you in the rinks soon!
