I'm not sure about this thats why i am asking but does ECHL have a farm team like a NHl team does AHL?
Wheeling has an agreement this season with the SPHL Richmond Renegades to place/call-up players. It remains to be seen whether it actually gets used or not. I expect that Wheeling might call up one or two guys for injury cover. AFAIK that is the only "farm" type agreement that an ECHL team has.
