The USHL was established in 1961. It was Semi-professional league until 1979, when it became fully amateur.

Many USHL players have gone on to compete in professional and college hockey. In 2003-04, the National Hockey League had 38 players with USHL experience.

The Sioux_Falls_Stampede won the 2006-07 USHL championship in an expanded, 12-team playoff format. The league has recently announced that it will revert to an 8-team divisional playoff format for the 2007-08 season.
