Boise, ID (4/10/18) – Idaho Steelheads Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Neil Graham announced the Steelheads’ roster for the 2018 U.S. Bank Kelly Cup Playoffs on Tuesday, as the Steelheads prepare for the Mountain Division Semifinal against the Allen Americans.

The Steelheads’ roster currently consists of 19 players. It can hold a maximum of 23- a 20 man active roster and a three-man reserve list. The Steelheads also have six players on their Playoff Eligible List, players currently with American Hockey League clubs that meet ECHL playoff requirements.

Throughout the playoffs, but prior to the start of the Conference Finals, as the players listed on the Playoff Eligible List become available (due to assignment, release from PTO, or their respective AHL teams’ seasons having ended), teams are permitted to supplement their initial roster with those players up to a maximum of 23 players total. Idaho has left four roster spaces vacant for these purposes.
