Buffalo, NY) -- The passing of Labor Day marks a new beginning in USA Junior Hockey circles as the league formerly known as the Continental Hockey Association formally becomes the Eastern States Hockey League (ESHL).
"The re-branding of the league will more closely relate to the geographic range of the 13 team league which stretches north to New Hampshire, south to Virginia and West to Buffalo" stated President Henry Lazar.
This is a new beginning and a new direction for our league as we look to develop the younger Junior Hockey Player and expose him to higher levels of opportunity in the hockey world added Commissioner Andy "Sarge" Richards.
The Mission of the Eastern States Hockey League is to provide the elite student athlete an opportunity to play a superior level of hockey in a structured and competitive environment. It is our objective to place the elite student athlete in a situation that allows him to fine tune his craft and expose his abilities and talent to a higher level of hockey including the College and Professional ranks.
The Eastern States Hockey League is committed to a high standard of excellence among its Owners, Management, Coaches, Officials and Players. The league seeks to provide a high level of coaching and marketing support for our student athletes and place them into an environment where they can excel.
