This is the 2019-20 ECHL season. This is the league's 32nd season.

Suspension of Play[edit | edit source]

The league release the following statement on March 12, 2020:

"As the on-going developments regarding COVID-19 in North America continue and precautionary measures ensue to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the ECHL has suspended the 2019-20 Season for the safety of our Fans, Players and Employees.

The ECHL and its Member Teams continue to work with national and local health officials and local governance to monitor the situation. In the interim, we encourage those in the ECHL community to take precautions and stay safe during this time.[1]

On the evening of March 14th the league would become the first North American professional league to officially cancel the remainder of the season.[2]

Membership changes[edit | edit source]

  • The Manchester Monarchs ceased operations after four seasons in the league following the 2015 AHL/ECHL franchise swap that was part of the creation of the AHL's Pacific Division.[3] The Monarchs' owners had put the team up for sale during their final season, but failed to find new owners and the franchise was terminated by the league.[4]
