Really appreciate you posting these pics, Les.
It's nice to see pics of teams we are not that
familier with. Hopefully, the CHL schedule will
have these teams hit all of the cities one day.
Doesn't look like that will be the case this year.
Job well done..

Unlikely to ever happen, actually. The league is too far-flung and the finances for long-distance in-season travel aren't there.

It's not just the CHL, of course, as the ECHL and AHL also limit travel outside each team's local geographic footprint.

I'm glad you like the photos.
Regarding the teams, I agree. I know that the first year the Sundogs were in the CHL, we never saw them in Tulsa (not even once). However, we eventually got to see them play and I figure it'll be that way with some of the other teams.

Plus, if we ever make the playoffs, that would also allow us to see some of the teams we might not normally get to see.
