The California Hockey League was an ice hockey league that existed from 1925 to 1933.

Teams (1927-1933)Edit

Due to a lack of information on the leagues first two seasons only the 1927-28 to 1932-33 seasons are listed below. It is likely most of the teams were based out of the Palais de Glace (Los Angeles) for the 1925-26 and 1926-27 seasons as well. The Glacier Palace opened in 1928 and the Pan Pacific Auditorium did not open until 1935 and became the primary indoor hockey venues in the arena upon opening

The league is also likely to have had the USC Trojans (which started in 1924) and UCLA Bruins (which started in 1926) ice hockey teams in the previous seasons. The teams would compete in the Southern Intercollegiate Hockey League.

Note: Multiple websites list the Richfield Oilers as being out of Richfield, California but Richfield is a place  in northern California with a population of 306 as of the 2010 US Census and is has an area of about 1/2 square mile. It is more likely the team was based out of Los Angeles and played out of the Palais de Glace (Los Angeles) as the former Richfield Oil Corporation, now known as ARCO was based out of Los Angeles. As for the season they were in the league all the other teams were based out of the Los Angeles area and a team named the Los Angeles Richfields played in the league the following season.
