What Is Smart Hockey?

header smart hockey

Play #SmartHockey.

That’s the British Columbia Hockey League’s message to young athletes.

There are a number of options available to Junior hockey players, and competing in the BCHL ensures that each of those doors will be open when it comes time to choose.

Playing Junior A hockey can lead many different places – to an NCAA or USports scholarship, to Major Junior or to the NHL.

Each year, dozens of BCHL graduates accept scholarships to top universities and colleges in Canada and the United States. From there, players like Brett Hull, Paul Kariya, Duncan Keith, Travis Zajac, Jason Garrison, Kyle Turris and Justin Schultz build careers that put them amongst the best players in the world.

Whatever your dream, you can achieve it when you play Smart Hockey.
