The Northeast Ten Conference is an intercollegiate athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA’s Division II. Member institutions are located in the northeastern United States in the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.

Only Men's ice hockey is sponsored in the conference, which started for the 2003-04 season.  The league members were all members of the ECAC Northeast and ECAC East through the 2008-09 season and appear to have had their own playoffs.  As the conference is Division II (NCAA) they do not participate in the NCAA Division III Men's Hockey ChampionshipSt. Anselm Hawks and St. Michael's Purple Knights play in NCAA Division III level New England Hockey Conference (formerly ECAC East) and are ineligible for their post season tournament or the national tournament as they play in Division II in all other sports.  They members of the NEHC (St. Anselm and St. Michael's) also participate in the NE10 conference tournament at the end of the season.

On January 9, 2017 the conference announced that the conference was expanding its' regular season schedule to 18 games with the addition of the Post University Eagles to the conference as a scheduling partner to give each of the 6 full members of the league 18 regular season games (3 against each league opponent) at the Division II level, Post University will not participate the conference tournaement. The release also stated that eligibility guidelines for junior hockey players was corrected by the NCAA to make it in line with D-I and D-III guidelines which were less strict than D-II. No mention was made of the change in status of the teams that play in D-III leagues but apparently they are becoming full members of the conference for hockey starting with the 2017-18 season.
