New-Look Manchester Monarchs To Kick Off First ECHL Season

monarchs.JPG

The new-look Manchester Monarchs host their season opener Friday night.

This will be the Monarchs’ inaugural season in the ECHL, formerly known as the East Coast Hockey League.

That league is a tier below the American Hockey League, which the Monarchs played in for 15 years.

After the team won its first AHL Calder Cup championship last year, its parent team the Los Angeles Kings moved the franchise to Ontario, California.

That team was replaced by the Kings’ double-A affiliate, which kept the Monarchs’ name and logo.

The Monarchs will host the Brampton Beast at Verizon Wireless Arena Friday at 7 p.m.
