    NWHL Wolf Pack Information



    The Wolf Pack Hockey Club is a successful member of the NWHL (Northwest Hockey League) house/travel league that has played against other programs in the Chicagoland area for many years.  This is a fun, competitive league where age levels with more than one team must be drafted to be as even as possible. In addition, players must receive balanced ice time as best as possible.

    The Wolf Pack program invests an enormous amount of time and effort ensuring teams get the very best coaching possible. Our staff is second to none.

    The league is ideal for the newer player as a stepping stone to playing travel hockey, or for the player that likes competition, but does not want the commitment and expectations of travel play. Players are eligible on a first come basis until team rosters are full.  Players deemed not yet ready for the level of play, will be recommended to continue in the hockey skills classes. 

    Most teams try to play in one or two tournaments a year. Some may be out of town. Teams average 3 x per week ice time which includes team practice, excellent skills sessions and home and away games.  

    Evaluations for the team drafts take place in Mid-March for the spring season with league play happening between April 1st and June 11th, 2017.
