Cowichan Valley Capitals fans have a new way to follow their favourite junior A hockey team through a new mobile app released by the B.C. Hockey League.

The app is available on the iOS App Store and the Android App Store by searching for “BCHL,” and provides schedules, scores, stories and more.

“With so many people in the hockey world reliant on mobile devices for information, this is a welcome addition to the BCHL,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. “We understand there is a demand for fast, accurate data about our teams and players and we trust the app supplies what fans, scouts and coaches are looking for.”

Updates are planned in future versions of the BCHL app and users may see changes to the display and functionality as early as this week.

The app is a first for the BCHL. A mobile-friendly site was available previously but this is the first league product available for download on iOS and Android platforms.
