ECHL TO NAME ALL-DECADE TEAM
As proud supporters of the Victoria Salmon Kings, all of us at Accent Inns encourage you to nominate your favorite Salmon Kings’ players and coaches!
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 [email protected].
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.
