CHL Media Credentials

CHL Media Passes are only issued to media that provide regular daily coverage of a team at home, who travel on the road, and are intended strictly for this use.

In an effort to effectively control the number of league passes distributed, greater emphasis will be placed on team issued passes and game day credentials requested by many online-only media outlets.

Please note that all submitted forms are subject to the approval of the Canadian Hockey League.

Passes from the 2015-16 season shall be honored for all 2016 exhibition games. Newly issued 2016-17 passes are valid for all CHL regular season and playoff games.
