2015-16 ECHL Divisional Alignment – Graphic by Icethetics.

As ECHL teams announce affiliations for the upcoming season new information will be added. Teams in BOLD have already renewed and announced their 2015-16 season affiliations. The ECHL voted earlier this summer to allow only one NHL team affiliation per ECHL team for the 2015-16 season and there will very likely be some ECHL teams with no NHL affiliation. See also the full list of NHL-AHL-ECHL affiliations.
