Gonna need the Wolves to win games 3 and 4, since I have tickets on the glass for game 5.

I was also in attendance at game 5 in 2002 when the Wolves won the Calder Cup, so I'd like history to repeat itself please.

On the other hand,
GO KICK SOME WOLF rear end, CHECKERS!

I don't really know who to cheer for. Charlotte beat the Marlies which makes me hate them, but also respect them, so I guess I want them to win. Even though the Wolves are cool, and Chicago is cool.

The Charlotte Motherfuggin' Checkers erased a 3-1 deficit to come back and win 5-3. They now need only one more win to hoist the Calder Cup.

Wolves pull the goalie, go to 3-2, then Checkers got an empty net to go to 4-2. The Wolves just got another with the extra attacker and there is 38 seconds left in regulation.

Congrats, Checkers

That's the second time I've been to the clinching game of the Calder Cup finals. The Wolves were clearly outmatched the whole game, but they kept it close at least.

Both empty net goals were shot from directly in front of me.

I play Rat Hockey with a 2-time Wisconsin national champ during Summer and she skates circles around everyone. Most of the guys are really chill, but every so often you get a dudebro that gets super mad about being owned by a girl.

ECHL posted:

Regular season overtime extended to seven minutes

The Board approved extending the length of overtime during the regular season from five minutes to seven minutes. Overtime will continue to be contested as “sudden death” in a 3-on-3 format. If neither team scores during the overtime period, the game will proceed to a shootout.



Players’ Month Approval

The Board approved February 2020 as “Players’ Month," where ECHL Teams and Players have the opportunity to wear “nicknames” on their jersey nameplates for a select home game during the month.



Playoff Eligibility for NHL/AHL Contracts

The Board amended the requirement for NHL and AHL contracted Players to be eligible for the ECHL Playoffs. The rule change places a minimum of five games played in the AHL throughout the regular season for any Veteran Player on either a 1-way or 2-way Contract, but eliminates the requirement for all other Players.

I think part of the reason he went to the WBS Pens is he wasn't moving up in Charlotte and the WBS Pens are basically an NHL coaching factory:

Let's say you're a top-line forward or player in general in the ECHL. What do you make a year? Around 50-60K?
