What is the minimum salary for an ECHL player?
Teams are required in 2007-08 to pay rookie players a minimum salary of $340 per week and returning players a minimum salary of $375 per week. A returning player is classified as a player who appeared on a teamís season-ending or playoff roster or who has played in 25 or more professional hockey games.
Anyone know how you could try-out...get to the ECHL or any of these other leagues?
Besides NCAA etc experience..?
I'm aware of one person who worked in the front office of a CHL team and had some experience playing club hockey in college - when the team he worked for grew kind of thin at one position owing to injury, he was signed by the team to serve as a reserve - this happened twice during one season - AFAIK he never saw any actual ice time but got dressed for the games, practiced with the team, traveled with the team, etc. - he was only to be used in case of dire emergency!
