This was the first year for Chicago’s ECHL franchise. I was a half season ticket holder and enjoyed the ups and downs this season. The Express ended up tied for the eighth and final spot in the conference, but lost out on the Kelly Cup Playoffs due to tiebreakers. Even though I’m sad I won’t be seeing them in the postseason, I am extremely proud of this team and all they accomplished this season. I hope to see many of the boys back in October!
