Recall / Assignment Deadline

This deadline comes before the ECHL deadline for a very important reason. According to Dan Petrino, Manager of Hockey Operations for the ECHL, since NHL/AHL contracted players are not property of an ECHL club, those players cannot be traded.  However, If an NHL/AHL team wants to move one of their contracted players from one ECHL Member to another, they must do so by March 8th at 11:59 pm local time.

Future Considerations

That phrase is something you see used with most trades in the ECHL, but what does it exactly mean? Petrino says future considerations refer to either a player or cash to be agreed upon at a later date. Those future considerations trades must be settled by June 13 at 3 pm Eastern Time.


The waiver wire in the ECHL works similarly to the waiver wire in other major professional sports. The waiver order is set weekly in the ECHL and the team with the worst percentage has the highest waiver priority, while the team with the best percentage has the last waiver priority. If a team makes a successful waiver claim during the week, they move to the bottom of the waiver priority until it resets again.
