Interesting, but is there a reason? And what about Smallman that someone was inquiring about?

 

Never mind, found gocanes0506 posted something on Smallman under Junior Hockey players, thanks gc0506. What was his injury anyway, and why so long to heal? Sorry, haven't kept up with him too closely.

 

Shoulder injury that required surgery.  He was injured before Florida's opener.

Smallman is up to 8 assists in 8 ECHL games after shoulder surgery.

I was a bit surprised that Smallman didn't make the Checkers. He was a late round pick, but he had a pretty nice Junior Hockey Career and was a beast in the playoffs. Our head scout had a lot of good things to say about him in an interview on Hockey Prospects a couple of years ago, even comparing him to Scott Walker. 

 

I wouldn't put it past him to be the rare guy that climbs up out of the ECHL.

To update the Smallman watch: Smallman has 2 goals and 9 assists in 10 ECHL games. I hope that he gets a couple of AHL games this season although he wont be eligible for their playoffs this season.  He can go back to Florida for ECHL playoffs.

Everblades Secure Brabham Cup with 5-1 Win Over Icemen

The Florida Everblades 5-1 victory over the Jacksonville Icemen  secured the Brabham Cup, which is awarded to the ECHL’s regular season champion for finishing with the best record.

It marked the third time Florida has earned the regular season trophy (1999-2000 & 2008-09).

So OBXer, is this and Checkers' playoff run an actual "ground swell" that will carry all the way up to the top level? Sure would hope that's the case.

 

On another front, I never thought much about this, but with so much time on my hands due once again to early tee times, are there waiver requirements between ECHL and AHL? I have never seen them, but really unsure.

Well they have missed the playoffs once since 1999. They won the Kelly Cup in 2012. So I wouldn't hold my breath. Winning is always important. It's a long way from the ECHL to the NHL. On any given year you might have one or two players that have a chance to get to the big club at some point. LaRose did,

 

** 32 Everblades Players are listed as “ECHL Graduates” (Player who played in ECHL before the NHL)

 

There are agreements between ECHL and AHL teams but I don't think any call ups require waivers.I'm not sure though

ESTERO, FL – Martin Ouellette set a new club record earning his 33rd win of the season to lead the Florida Everblades to a 4-1 victory over the Jacksonville Icemen in front of an announced crowd of 7,214 at Germain Arena Saturday night.  The Everblades conclude the regular season with a 53-13-2-4 mark, tying a team record for most wins in a season (53) and setting a new record for points in a season (112). Florida ends the regular season on a ten-game win streak. The Blades also broke their fewest goals allowed record, allowing only 171 goals on the year, beating the previous record set in 1998-1999 of 180

At the Everblades vs Glads game.  I sat at the end Atlanta shot at twice, intentionally, to see Booth in net.  Ouellette is in net tonight?‍♂️.  15 SOG total through 1.5 periods.  Florida gets a goal nullified and Atlanta scores a minute later.
