Any news on if the ducks will have an ECHL affiliate? Need somewhere to get Angus Redmond some playing time

Nothing from this end....i know as you do Utah has formed Alliance with Avs and Colorado Eagles...My thinking maybe with Rapid City Rush...Don't see Ducks join Forces with East Coast ECHL team.

There are four ECHL clubs without any NHL/AHL affiliates and the closest one is the Rapid City Rush in South Dakota. My personal favorite are the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.

Or they just buy an echl team and move it to Cali

Highly unlikely.....ECHL has had history of indy Hockey teams.

They don't have an NHL/AHL affiliate so fingers crossed.

Perhaps that 2500 seat rink at the new facility will have a new tenant?
I honestly cannot think of any other reason why they would need a 2500 seat arena unless they were planning on having a team or events that could fill those seats.

Rush I could see is the Ducks logically Choice for ECHL Team.

I suppose that a Duck could be considered a Swamp Rabbit.

But they don't have any rabbit ears.

Rumors have bounced around for years about Reno getting a team once there's an arena in place. It's a lot closer than Greenville, but Swamp Rabbits sounds better than Desert Rats. 

While the new Great Park Hullabalooo rink is convenient, I can certainly see there being more benefit in schedule flexibility and incoming money then trying to juggle Ducks stuff, high school stuff, possibly college stuff and ECHL dates. Plus, the market is a little heavy at the south end of the state between the Ducks and the Gulls.
