An umbrella organization representing the three Canada-based major ice hockey leagues, the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) was founded in 1975. Created specifically for players between the ages of 16-20 years of age, the league was originally called the Canadian Major Junior Hockey League.
Composed of members from the three major leagues, the Western Hockey League, the Ontario Hockey League, and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, the CHL is credited with helping develop some of the top hockey talent in the world and remains one of the top suppliers of players to both the American Hockey League and the National Hockey League, among others.
Given that the league has been in existence since 1975, there are a number of notable records to discuss with regards to the CHL. For instance, regarding the most Memorial Cups won, there is a four-way tie between Ryan Huska, Tyson Nash, Darcy Tucker and Robert Savard, each of whom have managed to secure three such victories.
On the flip side, while many coaches are tied for second place with regards to coaches with the “most Memorial Cups won,” only Don Hay has managed to secure three victories.
On another note, there are also three players tied for having the most goals. Those players are Dale Hawerchuk (Cornwall) in 1981, Luc Robitaille (Hull) in 1986 and Pat Falloon (Spokane) in 1991, each of whom scored eight goals.
The record for most assists belongs to Dan Hodgson (Prince Albert), with 13 assists in 1985. On the other hand, when speaking of most points in general, that is a two-way tie between Jeff Larmer (Kitchener) in 1982 and Guy Rouleau (Hull) in 1986, each of whom scored 16 points.
Overall, there have been quite a few talented players to play in the Canadian Hockey League. A league that not only allows young, talented athletes to showcase their talents but also gives them the opportunity to get recruited into professional leagues. These records represent the achievements of some of the top young hockey talents in the entire world.
