Since the New York Junior Bobcats started at the junior level in 2000 the franchise has been one of the most successful junior programs in both the Metropolitan and Eastern Hockey Leagues.
Throughout the team’s 14-year history, the Bobcats have served as a springboard for players to move onto the Tier 1 junior level, collegiate, and professional ranks. More than 25 of its alumni have moved onto the NCAA Division I level. Many have taken their careers to the NCAA Division III level. Some have used the Bobcats as a stepping stone to the USHL or NAHL before making an impact during their college careers.
