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 27th season in 2014-16 and has grown from five teams in four states in 1988-89 into a coast-to-coast league with 28 teams in 20 states and one Canadian province.
The Class of 2015 - Darren Colbourne, Louis Dumont, Scott Sabatino and Carl Scheer - will be inducted during the ECHL Hall of Fame Luncheon, presented by BFL CANADA, on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015, at 12 Noon at the DoubleTree By Hilton Orlando Downtown.
