BCHL clarifies stance on media access to information for roster deadline

Press Release

The British Columbia Hockey League examined its media policy from last year regarding media access to information on transactions occurring on the Jan. 10 roster deadline. The league has altered the regulation for this season.

The regulation now reads:

BCHL coaches and general managers will be allowed to discuss the details of any team transaction once all players involved in a given transaction have been notified.

Teams caught in contravention of this regulation are subject to a fine.

Transaction deadlines are as follows:

Jan. 10, 6 p.m. PST - deadline for inter-branch (BCHL to CJHL) transactions

Jan. 10, 8 p.m. PST - deadline for transactions within the BCHL
