The Victoria Salmon Kings, proud affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks and Manitoba Moose, announced in conjunction with the ECHL that the league will honor an All-Decade Team to celebrate the best players to perform in the League from 2000-2010.
The ECHL will accept nominations from teams and fans starting today and running through September 24th. Nominations should be sent via e-mail to ECHL@echl.com.
Starting in early October, teams and fans will have the opportunity to vote for the All-Decade Team on ECHL.com. The League will announce the All-Decade Team in November. The All-Decade Team will consist of six forwards, four defensemen, two goaltenders and one coach.
In order to be eligible for the All-Decade Team, players or coaches must have made a significant impact on the ECHL from 2000 through 2010. An individual must have played or coached in parts of at least four seasons from the 2000-01 season through the 2009-10 season to be eligible for the All-Decade Team. Only those accomplishments, statistics, awards, honors and achievements earned during ECHL play should be taken into account when nominating players or coaches for the All-Decade Team. Final nominations will be based on voting and the meeting of certain criteria.
The Salmon Kings open the 2010-11 season on Friday, October 15th in Idaho with a two-game set versus the defending National Conference champion Steelheads. Victoria returns home to open up their schedule at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre with a three-game set versus the Ontario Reign beginning Wednesday, October 27th.
