For those uninitiated to minor league hockey, the AHL is akin to AAA in baseball while the ECHL is like AA.
Colorado spent the first 8 seasons of their existence in the Central Hockey League, where they were far and away the league’s most dominant team. They had a .715 winning percentage, won the league regular season championship three times, and made the league championship series five times, winning it twice.
