ECHL and WCHL Merge to make Minor League System

The new ECHL this year has begun this season by including the west coast hockey teams in the Western Hockey League. This infusion of two leagues is reminiscent of the old WHA teams becoming NHL franchises. It also legitimizes a league that now has the capability to provide minor league development all over the United States. Check out the ECHL hockey league link to the left of the page for the teams. Included in the new super ECHL league is an expansion franchise Gwinnett Gladiators from near Atlanta, GA. I recommend that you visit their official site.
