The ECHL Hall of Fame was formed in 2007-08 in conjunction with the ECHL’s 20th Anniversary. The third-longest tenured professional hockey league, behind only the National Hockey League and the American Hockey League, the Premier ‘AA’ Hockey League is in its 30th season in 2017-18 and has grown from five teams in four states in 1988-89 into a coast-to-coast league with 27 teams in 21 states and one Canadian province.
