ECHL: Chase Zieky Heading Overseas

Latoya Fournier/InsideTheRink

Forward Chase Zieky is heading overseas to France for the 2024-25 season. The 24-year-old forward played four seasons at the NCAA level, spending two seasons at Providence College and his final two years at RPI, where he would put up 15 goals and 23 assists for 38 points in 63 games. Zieky would take the 2020-21 season off before making the jump to the ECHL, where he would sign with the Idaho Steelheads, playing in 38 games, putting up 12 goals and five assists for 17 points before being traded to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, where he would add three goals and one assists for four points in six games. The following season, would be another year of switching teams as he would play in 46 games, as he would spend time with the Swamp Rabbits, Wheeling Nailers, and the Maine Mariners, where he would put up 14 goals and 12 assists for 26 points.

The 2023-24 season would be Zieky’s best year in the ECHL, and one of the reasons for that may be because he spent the entire season with Maine, where he put up 17 goals and 20 assists for 37 points in 50 games, after putting up seven goals and seven assists for 14 points in 23 games with the Mariners during the 202-23 season. He put up 46 goals and 38 assists for 84 points in 140 regular season games in the ECHL and added one goal and one assist in eight career Kelly Cup Playoff Games. The Connecticut native is the second Mariner to take the overseas route after defenseman Fedor Gordeev headed back to Russia shortly after the Mariner’s season was over.
