Money is one of the reasons i'm not playing this year, as well. The job i'm working until i go try out in Europe pays me a good amount more.
ECHL is between 17 and 30 thousand depending on who you are. We also get our housing covered for 9 months. But of course, you got to pay for your own food, entertainment, etc etc. Generally in the 3 months off the lower paid guys have to find a summer job.
I've known a bunch of people who give up on their hockey careers at the age of 24 or 25 because of the financial situations. Also, a lot of us ECHLers will go to europe. Someone also told me Japan is an option, but in all honesty i've never looked into Japan.
And yes, i'm a goalie. Been one for about 17 years now. Never played another position.
