Even before the Victoria Salmon Kings played what is assumed to be their final ECHL game, the rumor mill churned out a potential replacement.
According to a report in the Quad-City Times, the Central Hockey League’s Loveland-based Colorado Eagles could join the ECHL as early as next season. The report notes that the league is working on a 19- or 20-team schedule for next season. The Chicago Express will join the ECHL and bring the league to 20 teams, but losing the Salmon Kings will bring the number to 19.
Which is number 20?
