    Looking forward to the next CHL season. groups of 4 and less teams overall make sense.

    For me, Group E looks to be the strongest. Though, given the smaller competition this year, it should be better overall.

    Only 10 days or so to the start of the new CHL season! The league is again producing short (approx. 2min) introduction videos for all teams. I really enjoy those, as it gives an overview of the diverse hockey teams participating:
