​​This year the WCHL will say goodbye to one of the most dominating and consistent players in our league history. After 17 seasons, #25 Marty Witberg will be hanging up his jersey for one last time. That jersey is a Wolf Pack jersey.
 
For 17 years Witberg is the only WCHL player to remain with the same team for their entire career.
 
142 Regular Season Games
388 Goals
143 Assists
531 Points
116 Penalty Minutes
 
Offensive Player of the Year
All-Star MVP
2x Goals Title
2x Assists Title
2x Best Duo
Playoff MVP
 
Marty has led the Wolf Pack to two Wheelers Cups and has helped the Michigan Mustangs win 2 US Championship and 2 North American Silver Medals.
 
Witberg was a constant scoring threat during his entire career and was a core member of the WCHL and a building block of the Michigan Mustangs, representing Michigan at 10 tournaments. To have a player as reliable and as consistent as Marty was a real luxury to have when building teams both locally and nationally.
 
He's been teammate, opponent and friend and we will all be sad to see him go.
 
Both the Wolf Pack and Michigan Mustangs will proudly retire #25.

​The Wheelchair Hockey League (WCHL) is excited to announce that we have partnered up with the Canfield Alkali Arena @ 2100 Kinloch St. in Dearborn Heights, MI

The Canfield Alkali Arena is the first ice hockey rink to have a full-time and full-size [200’ x 85’] inline hockey rink in Michigan. This facility just converted an ice rink into a roller hockey rink. It is gorgeous, clean, and provides an amazing atmosphere. The Motor City Chiefs & Canfield Alkali Chiefs play in the AIHL (American Inline Hockey League)

What does this mean for the WCHL?

This means that we will be moving to the Canfield Alkali Arena in Dearborn Heights beginning the 2015-16 season. Our games will remain 1-4PM but will now be played on Sundays.

We realize that these new circumstances might not be to everybody's liking, but this is the best possible place for our league to grow, host more fans, get more exposure and provide everyone with a more hockey-like atmosphere.

Gerry Lullove, the President of the Motor City Chiefs Hockey Club, the managing body of the arena is a long time friend of the WCHL and was a supporter and fan of the WCHL from the very start. Helping us attend our very first tournament in Toronto in 2000, Minnesota in 2001 and once bringing the Hanson Brothers to a WCHL game and now helping us find a permanent home for the WCHL.

The Canfield Alkali Arena will provide us with a friendly, exciting, and amped atmosphere for all WCHL games. It will also allow our games to be played on a full-sized court (we currently play at about 80% regulation size), get more involved in the roller-hockey community and finally, this move will allow the WCHL to save a considerably large amount of money in rent and insurance annually.

The WCHL's official move will take place on Sunday, June 28 from 1-4pm as we will play the 2015 WCHL All-Star Game at the new Canfield Alkali Arena.

Registration to play in the 2015-16 WCHL Season will take place on Sunday, August 30th and Sunday, September 13th from 1-4PM.

The 2015-16 WCHL Season Opener will take place on Sunday, October 4th
