Starting tomorrow with its all-rookie team, the ECHL will begin to name its 2009-10 awards winners. Even though it’s been a down year for the Reign in the standings, some players have compiled some hard-to-ignore statistics.
Goaltender Curtis Darling leads the league in saves and minutes, is tied for fifth in wins and ranks sixth in goals-against average. David Walker leads all ECHL defensemen in power-play assists, ranks third among defensemen in overall assists and is tied for sixth in points by a defenseman. He’s also tied for fourth among ECHL blueliners with 12 major penalties. Forward Greg Hogeboom is 10th in the league in goals scored.
