League Business[edit]

Team changes[edit]

The Amarillo Gorillas and the Corpus Christi IceRays folded and both were replaced by a North American Hockey League team.

Expansion[edit]

On June 1, 2010, the Central Hockey League (CHL) and the International Hockey League (IHL) announced that they would merge and play under the CHL moniker.[1]

On June 10, 2010, it was announced that four IHL teams made the move to the CHL, the Fort Wayne Komets, Bloomington PrairieThunder, Dayton Gems and the Quad City Mallards.[2] It was later announced that the Evansville IceMen would also participate in the league.[3] This is after team ownership in Evansville, Indiana purchased the former IHL Muskegon Lumberjacks franchise.

League realignment[edit]

All-Star Game[edit]

It was announced that the 2011 Central Hockey League All-Star Game would be held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, home of the Rapid City Rush on January 12, 2011. The defending champions Rapid City Rush and coach Joe Ferras will form one team in the match-up and will be opposed by a team of CHL All-Stars composed of players from the other 17 CHL member teams.
