The ECHL and Professional Hockey Players’ Association (PHPA) have announced the development of a relief fund to assist ECHL players and their families suffering a financial hardship following the sudden and unexpected cancellation of the 2019-20 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. By working with the hockey community and anyone willing to make a contribution, the joint effort will work to raise funds for those most in need during this unprecedented period.

The average ECHL salary hovers around $700 a week. Several clubs simply couldn’t afford to keep paying players without simultaneously selling tickets and generating revenue from the various game day sources that keep minor-league franchises afloat. Your donations will help players get through the loss of the season. Go here to contribute to this cause.
