ECHL cancels ’12 ASG, modifies icing rule.

There will be no ECHL All-Star Game in 2012, and the league’s no-touch icing rule will undergo a slight modification, the league’s Board of Governors has decided.

Per a league press release,

The
ECHL will not conduct an All-Star Game during the 2011-12 season. The
League is exploring opportunities for an outdoor game and other special
events for the ECHL’s 25th Anniversary season in 2012-13. The annual
Hall of Fame Induction luncheon will be held in conjunction with the
Mid-Season Meeting on Wednesday, January 18 at a yet to be determined
location.

The league also tweaked its icing rule in a move that should only increase offense:

The
ECHL has adopted the attainable icing standard in conjunction with
no-touch icing. Under this icing standard, the linesman shall have
discretion to wave off apparent icing infractions on attempted passes if
those passes are deemed receivable (attainable).  In order for the
linesman to wash out the icing for this reason, the receiving player’s
stick must be on the attacking side of the center red line.

Additional
rule changes for the 2011-12 season may be voted on by the Board of
Governors at the Preseason Meeting in September, including adoption of
new language relating to hits to the head.

Two other notable decisions were announced by the Board. The Reign will remain in the same division with Bakersfield, Stockton and Las Vegas, as expected, while Colorado will join the Mountain Division, taking the place of Victoria. In the Eastern Conference, the Trenton Titans will take the Trenton Devils’ place in the Atlantic Division, while the Chicago Express will join Cincinnati, Kalamazoo and Toledo in the North Division.

Also, Gwinnett Gladiatiors president Steve Chapman was re-elected to serve a sixth term as Chairman of the Board of Governors.
