For other leagues named Continental Hockey League, please see Continental Hockey League (disambiguation).

The Continental Hockey League (CnHL) was a league based in the United States. Founded in 1972 as an amateur league, the CHL gained the semi-pro status in the 1980s.



Folding and aftermathEdit

After the league folded in 1986, three of its teams, the Danville Fighting Saints, the Dayton Jets and the Troy Sabres went on to found the All-American Hockey League. That league was short-lived and has led to the creation of the East Coast Hockey League.
