ECHL Guidelines:

Season-Ending Rosters may include up to 20 players. Season-Ending Rosters cannot include any players who did not sign an ECHL contract in 2023-24.

Each team is entitled to reserve rights to a maximum of eight players from the list of 20 by extending a qualifying offer no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on July 7. Of the eight qualified players, no more than four can be veterans (260 regular season professional hockey games played as of the start of the 2023-24 Season). Players on open qualifying offers cannot be traded. Teams are not required to extend a qualifying offer to players who sign a contract prior to July 7.

The qualifying offer must remain open for acceptance until 11:59 p.m. ET on July 22 at which time the qualifying offer becomes null and void and the team may sign the qualified player to any salary or may elect to take no further action. Teams that extend a valid qualifying offer to a non-veteran player shall retain the rights to that qualified player for one playing season.

A team that extends a valid qualifying offer to a veteran player, or to a goaltender who has played more than 180 regular-season games, will retain the rights to that player until 11:59 p.m. ET on July 22. After July 22, if the veteran player or goaltender is not signed to a contract by the team, the veteran or goaltender shall be deemed a restricted free agent and shall be entitled to seek and secure offers of employment from other ECHL teams. Restricted free agents may not be traded. When a restricted free agent receives a contract offer from a team other than the team with the player’s rights and the restricted free agent wishes to accept the contract offer, the restricted free agent and the offering member must, within 24 hours, notify the ECHL, the team with the player’s rights and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association. The member with the player’s rights shall have seven days after the date it is notified to exercise its right to match the contract offer.

If a restricted free agent is not signed to either an offer sheet or a contract by an ECHL team by 11:59 p.m. ET on August 8, the player shall be deemed an unrestricted free agent.

Will We See the Everblade Forwards in the Fall?

The Cincinnati Cyclones have acquired forwards Bobo Carpenter and Zach Tsekos from the Florida Everblades to complete the future considerations trade that sent Zack Andrusiak to Florida at the trade deadline. Carpenter, who recently led the Everblades to a third consecutive Kelly Cup, served as an assistant captain this year. The 27-year-old accumulated 46 points during the regular season and outperformed all Florida skaters with 23 points and 12 goals during the team’s extended playoff run. Prior to this, he played four years in the AHL with the Milwaukee Admirals and Bridgeport Sound Tigers, following a four-year stint with Boston University.

Zach Tsekos, a left-handed forward, moves to the Cyclones after finishing his third professional season. In the most recent season, he accumulated 11 points (5 goals, 6 assists) in 27 games played with the eventual Kelly Cup champions. The native of Montréal, Quebec has competed in 60 ECHL games between the Everblades and the Grizzlies, in addition to participating in six AHL games with the Colorado Eagles. During his college career, he played for Clarkson University and Sacred Heart, ultimately amassing a total of 117 points over five years.

As a Cyclones fan, I hope Bobo Carpenter does not head overseas, and stays with the Cyclones for this upcoming season. He would add so much value to this young team and could be on the top lines, possibly leading us to the Kelly Cup Playoffs.
