MB Ice Arena, the practice home of the Chicago Blackhawks is set up host to a professional summer hockey league in July. The CPHL (Chicago Pro Hockey League) will include elite developmental players and professionals from the ECHL, AHL and NHL.
The CPHL will not be short on current, future and former Blackhawks players. Names like Alex Debrincat, Vinnie Hinostroza, Nick Schmaltz, Jordan Oesterle, Henri Jokiharju, Ryan Hartman, Tommy Wingels and Brandon Bollig are projected to play.
Anders Sorensen and Brian Keane are the player development and skills coaches who envisioned the CPHL. They work with professional and elite amateur hockey players and decided to capitalize on the large amount of players who train around Chicago in the summer.
