The Pacific Coast Hockey Association PCHA was a professional men's ice hockey league in western Canada and the western United States, which operated from 1911 to 1924 when it then merged with the Western Canada Hockey League WCHL The PCHA was considered to be a major league of ice hockey and was important in the development of the sport of professional ice hockey through its innovations

The league was started by the Patrick family, professional hockey players from Montreal, building new arenas in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia After a few years of play, the league was accepted by the Stanley Cup trustees as being of a high enough standard that teams from its league were accepted for Stanley Cup challenges Starting in 1915, the league entered into an agreement where the Stanley Cup was to be contested between the National Hockey Association and the PCHA after the regular seasons were finished The league struggled to make money, and various teams moved into different cities in an attempt to be successful financially Eventually, the league, to survive, merged with the WCHL in 1924
