Condors announce Protected List

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. The Bakersfield Condors today submitted their Protected List to the ECHL office. The list includes 29 players that qualified per league rules.

The Protected List is the first of three “lists” ECHL teams may use to reserve the rights of players for the 2012-13 campaign. Teams are allowed to protect as many players as they wish provided the players protected meet the guidelines as defined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the ECHL and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association:

1. Signed a Standard Players Contract in 2011-12 with the Member, and has not been traded or released, OR
2. Signed a Standard Players Contract in 2011-12, and was recalled to the NHL/AHL or IIHF team, and has not been traded or released, OR
3. Had received a Qualifying Offer last summer for the current season, DID NOT sign an SPC, and has not been traded or released, OR
4. Has been suspended by the Member or League, and has not been traded or released, OR
5. Signed a Standard Players Contract on or after the first day of the 2011-12 regular season, then subsequently signed an NHL/AHL contract, and has not been traded or released, OR
6. Has executed the ECHL Retirement Form, and has not been traded or released

Of the 29 players, four were “qualified” by Bakersfield last July and did not sign, two played for the team in 2011-12 and were subsequently suspended, and 23 were eligible off the 2011-12 roster to be protected.
