The Bridgewater Bandits (previously the Boston Bandits) are a Junior A ice hockey team from Bridgewater, Massachusetts, USA, playing in the United States Premier Hockey League. The team plays home games at the Bridgewater Ice Arena in Bridgewater, Massachusetts

The Bandits organization also fielded teams in the lower level EHL - Elite, as well as youth hockey select teams at the Bantam, Peewee, and Squirt and various other levels. The EHL - Elite team originally played in the Empire Junior B Hockey League until 2013 and then the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (MetJHL) from 2013 to 2015 at which point the EHL added the Elite Division and the former EHL teams were all promoted to the Premier Division.

The organization moved to the United States Premier Hockey League in 2017.

On November 14, 2019 the franchise rights to the NCDC franchise were sold to the Philadelphia Hockey Club starting with the 2020-21 season. The lower level teams will remain in their USPHL leagues. Over the next few months the organization was sold along with the Bridgewater Ice Arena. The organization reverted to the Bridgewater Bandits name for the 2020-21 season.
