Similarly, they all played for the New Jersey Hitmen, who were then followed by Quinnipiac University.

How is Connor Clifton’s Ice Hockey Career as an Amateur?

Senior High School

Christians Brothers Academy was where Connor Clifton went to school. While in high school, he was a prep hockey fanatic. He played for the New Jersey Hitmen in the former Empire Junior Hockey League (EJHL), the forerunner of today’s USPHL Elite Division, as a 14-year-old in 2009. He then joined the top team of the former EJHL (forerunner of today’s NCDC), the New Jersey Hitmen. As a 16-year-old, he had 12 points in 28 games for the Hitmen. Clifton was then selected 133rd overall in the fifth round of the NHL entry draft by the Arizona Coyotes. They did not, however, sign him.

Quinnipiac University is a private university in Connecticut.
