The 12th annual USA Hockey Sled Classic, presented by the NHL, will take place November 17-20, 2022, in Irvine, California. The Anaheim Ducks will play host to the event at Great Park Ice & FivePoint Arena.
First staged in 2010, the USA Hockey Sled Classic is an annual round-robin format tournament between NHL-affiliated sled hockey teams. Participating teams in the tournament must have an official affiliation with an NHL member club and must represent their affiliated NHL club by wearing official NHL licensed jerseys with local club marks and logos.
In 2021, the New Jersey Devils played host to the event, which included 27 teams in five divisions competing at the Ice Vault Arena in Wayne, New Jersey. The Chicago Blackhawks sled program was crowned the Tier I champion, while the Pittsburgh Penguins won Tier II, Columbus Blue Jackets took Tier III, Vegas Golden Knights secured Tier IV and the New York Islanders brought home the Tier V title.
