2045 - The Canadian Hockey League (CHL)

This thread will be a season-by-season account of the Canadian Hockey League.

Started in 2045 the Canadian Hockey League was formed following the collapse of the NHL. The 8 Canadian teams remaining from the NHL (Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Quebec Nordiques, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets) came together at an emergency meeting on June 29th, 1945 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Ontario to devise a plan to save hockey in Canada. Among representatives of these teams at the meeting were representatives from all amateur, major junior and junior teams from across Canada. Together they devised a plan to start a 32 team professional league, a 32 team minor league and a 36 team major junior league. They agreed that to remain financially stable the leagues and teams would support each other through profit sharing and focus on player development as well as being financially stable. They decided that the league would have a 3 point system, a starting salary cap of $80,000,000 CAD and an initial draft to determine full rosters.

Thus the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), Canadian Minor Hockey League (CMHL) and Canadian Junior Hockey Association (CJHA) were born.


Stay tuned for more news from CHL Central.
