Idaho’s ECHL hockey franchise agreed to terms with defenseman Corbin Baldwin, who ranked sixth in the league in plus/minus rating while playing all 72 games for the Steelheads last season. The Dallas Stars affiliate begins its regular season Oct. 14.
The Idaho Steelheads scored three goals in the first 6 minutes, 36 seconds, and four in the first period, leading to a 7-1 rout of the reigning league champion Allen Americans in Game 5 of an ECHL hockey first-round playoff series Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena in Boise.
Depending on how you look at it, the Idaho Steelheads still have a chance to seize control of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Allen Americans. Or they’re two losses away from another early postseason letdown.
