Welcome to the first edition of Game Changer Sports Network’s ECHL Weekly. Here you will find the standings going into the weekend’s games, a Top 10 Power Ranking, 3 stars of the week, and more.

Let’s start out by wishing the Adirondack Thunder star, Shane Conacher the best of luck in his retirement. Unfortunately, Conacher missed a lot of time last season due to testicular cancer and will require surgery and extensive rehabilitation after suffering a torn labrum in the first game of the season. Get Well Soon Shane!

Team of the Week

This week’s team of the week goes to a team who has had a very impressive beginning to their season starting out 8-1 earning them 2nd in the South with 4 games in hand on the Florida Everblades. Last week the South Carolina Stingrays outscored their opponents 15-4 in 3 games, 8-2 vs Orlando and 4-0/3-2 vs Greenville. Will the Stingrays continue their hot streak and be GCSN’S team of the week back-to-back?
