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.
The inaugural Sled Classic featured four teams and 46 players. The 2022 event featured 23 teams (with certain NHL clubs fielding multiple squads) and 279 total skaters. The champions of the 2022 Sled Classic were as follows: Boston Bruins (Tier I), Pittsburgh Penguins (Tier 2), Boston Bruins (Tier 3), Carolina Hurricanes (Tier 4), Chicago Blackhawks (Tier 5).
