Toronto, Ont. – The Canadian Hockey League is proud to announce a partnership with Adept Mobile to bring an industry-leading mobile app to fans of the Canadian Hockey League. The new app will cover off 60 teams, three regional leagues, and the CHL National Events, including the CIBC Canada Russia Series, the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game, and the Memorial Cup Presented by Kia.
The new CHL App will feature traditional news and video content, an advanced stats and game centre platform, and an array of features to engage fans and continue to deliver new content. The CHL App will bring a customized experience to fans whether they are in an arena watching a game or at home watching via a broadcast or live stream.
