With the release of the brand new NHL 17 video game, The Sin Bin decided to simulate the results of this year’s AHL and ECHL seasons. Since the final rosters won’t be determined till closer to the season and we are very impatient, we decided to simulate through this season’s schedule, conference, and division alignment, with last year’s roster. Today, we are doing the ECHL simulation and here are the results.

NHL 17 Simulation

According to our simulation, the Allen Americans would beat the Elmira Jackals in Game 7 in the Kelly Cup Finals. The Allen Americans winning the cup wouldn’t come as a surprise to many as the Americans have won the Kelly Cup the past two seasons.

The real surprise here is the Elmira Jackals. Last season, the Jackals finished with a 37-30-3-2 record and missed the playoffs.

Down below are the simulated divisions and conference standings.
