Earlier we looked at the very small set of October’s games and this month we have a much better idea of how the former CHL teams, now the ECHL’s Central Division, are performing this season. The Allen Americans and Tulsa Oilers have been battling it out for the top spot the past week, while Wichita has jump-started their season to move up in the standings. Other teams such as Rapid City have fallen rapidly, struggling to stop their losing skid.
Keep in mind the stats below are through the end of November (unless listed as “current”) and there have been some slight changes in the first few days of December.
The ECHL’s Central Division for the Month of November:
|4||Quad City Mallards||18||7||5||3||2||19|
|7||Rapid City Rush||18||5||12||0||1||11|
Overall, as of Dec. 4th, the ECHL leaders are the Ft. Wayne Komets (at 28 pts with 18 games) and the Florida Everblades (at 27 points with 17 games) in the Eastern Conference. In the Western Conference the Allen Americans (at 26 points with 17 games) are even with the Idaho Steelheads (at 26 points with 21 games) however Allen continues to hold an advantage with fewer games played so far into the season. For November the Central Division’s top 3 teams, Tulsa, Allen, and Wichita are pulling ahead while Quad City, Missouri, Brampton and Rapid City are falling, or continuing to remain behind the pack this month.
