Canadian Hockey League to introduce league-wide drug testing policy

The CHL and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport have scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to unveil the details of the plan.

Western Hockey League commissioner Ron Robison says that players in his league and the Ontario Hockey League will start getting tested later this season after they have been educated about the policy.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has had a drug-testing policy for the past two seasons. It served as a test case for the CHL.
