Adult Safe Hockey League (ASHL) Now Offering Stats and Schedules in French
May 12, 2011
Toronto, ON — Canlan Ice Sports, working with its technology partner Pointstreak Sports Technologies, is proud to announce that the statistical webpages for Adult Safe Hockey League (ASHL) will now be offered in French as well as English - a first for any adult recreational hockey league in Canada.
This new functionality allows viewers to toggle the ASHL's stats pages (such as box scores, schedules, etc) between Canada's two official languages, French and English. The first ASHL league to introduce the new French capability was Les 4 Glaces in Brossard, Quebec.
"We are very proud to be the premium adult recreational hockey league in North America and our players expect us to be pioneers with technology" said Tony Lemire, Corporate Manager, ASHL, "Pointstreak was able to accomplish something that we felt was crucial in offering our 'full package' to all customers in both of Canada’s official major languages. We look forward to offering further advancements to our technological offerings that will make the ASHL even better in the future"
"Translating our stats pages into French has been a long time coming" said Gregg Sayer, Vice President of Communications at Pointstreak, "When the ASHL approached us with this project, we immediately knew it was something we had to do. It's good for the ASHL, it's good for their customers and it's good for Pointstreak's general marketability in Quebec and abroad."
