Re: Eastern Canada Hockey Organization

1946/47 ECHO Regular Season

The Montréal Métros maintained their position as the top team in the Saint Lawrence division, but their lead on the rest of the division was not as significant as last year. They finished just 2 points ahead of 2nd place Ottawa, who managed to secure a playoff spot without relying on tiebreakers. The Knights had an outstanding season thanks to Joe Djogo, who scored a league-leading 48 goals and earned 68 points, also the highest in the league. Despite the impressive performance of goalie Alex Davis, the Quebec Reds failed to make it to the playoffs once again, falling 4 points behind Ottawa. The Montreal Beavers, who missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker last year, had a disappointing season and ended up at the bottom of the division and the league. They won only 17 of the 52 games on their schedule.

Halifax took first place in the Maritimes Division, building on their success from last year. The Highlanders were led by centers Michael Fraser (48 pts), Michael MacKenzie (53 pts), and new starting goalie Tristan Campbell. Charlottetown finished in second, 6 points behind the Highlanders, with Jermaine Thompson (63 points) and William Weber (49 points) significantly contributing to the Monarchs making the playoffs this year. Unfortunately, last year's division winner, the Saint John Admirals, missed the playoffs due to inconsistency and struggled with injuries and their goaltending. Moncton finished in last place, with the Generals getting more losses than wins due to them giving all 52 goalie starts to their starter Matthew Phillips due to them not having a backup goalie to let Phillips rest. 

The playoff format stays the same, with the first round being a best of 3 series and the Sound Cup Finals being a best of 5 series.

Re: Eastern Canada Hockey Organization

1947 Sound Cup Playoffs  

Montréal Métros vs Ottawa Knights
The Métros were the first to score when Louis Wagner's powerful slapshot beat Ottawa goalie Garry Martin just 9 minutes into Game 1; however, the Knights quickly responded, with Gilles Osse finding the back of the net on a powerplay just 3 minutes later. After almost 20 minutes of play, the Métros regained the lead with Gaëtan Patenaude scoring. Robert Leblanc extended the lead to 3-1 for the Métros just a minute and a half later. Patenaude scored his second goal early in the third period, giving Montréal a comfortable 3-goal lead. However, Joe Djogo scored for the Knights, reducing the deficit to 2 with just 6 minutes left. Unfortunately for the Knights, Gaëtan Patenaude completed his hat trick with a rebound goal just 2 minutes later, and Marc-Antoine Lacroix added another to give the Métros a convincing 6-2 victory.

Ottawa's Tim Lisle scored the first goal of game two during the second period's early stages via powerplay. However, the Métros quickly countered with their own goal, scored by Jérôme Brunet, also via powerplay, just two minutes later. The score remained tied until the end of the third period, and the game went into overtime. After nine minutes of overtime, Ottawa's Doug Fournier scored the winning goal, sending the series to Game 3.

In the first 5 minutes of Game 3, the Métros scored the first goal when Marc-Antoine Lacroix took a powerful slap shot that passed the Ottawa goalie. In the second period, the Knights tied the game with a goal from Joe Djogo, who managed to bank the puck off the post and past last year's playoff MVP, Nicolas Deschênes. Later in the second period, the Knights took the lead with a powerplay goal from Henry Lee. At the start of the third period, Joe Djogo scored again, giving Ottawa a 2-goal lead. A few minutes later, Tim Lisle scored for the Knights making it 4-1, and Raymond Brooks added to the Knights' score. Ottawa would hold on and stun the defending champions and advance to the Sound Cup Finals. 
[OTT wins 2-1]

Halifax Highlanders vs Charlottetown Monarchs
Even though Halifax was expected to win this series, Charlottetown's Ken Chang scored the first goal of the game against Halifax goalie Tristan Campbell with only six minutes left in the first period. However, Bryce Stewart quickly responded for the Highlanders by deflecting the puck past Monarchs goalie Peter Chiasson, tying the game 1-1 just 15 seconds after the Monarchs' goal. The game remained tied until early in the third period when Halifax defenseman Chris MacKenzie scored on the power play, giving his team the lead. Despite their efforts, the Monarchs could not score again, and Jayden Ross sealed a 3-1 victory for Halifax with an empty netter.

During the second period of Game 2, Kain Marshall from Charlottetown scored the first goal, followed by Kevin Delahunt, who increased the Monarchs' lead four minutes later. However, Halifax scored a goal with a slap shot from Charlie Ellis soon after Charlottetown's second goal, and Michael Fraser tied the game late in the second period with a rebound goal. William Weber from Charlottetown scored early in the third period, regaining their lead. Still, Donald Harvey of the Highlanders scored a goal a few minutes later, tying the game again. Charlottetown quickly bounced back with a goal from Frederic Dickey, and Denzel Mitchell scored another with only 45 seconds left. Bryce Stewart from Halifax scored a goal with just 7 seconds left, but it was too late. Ultimately, Charlottetown won 5-4, taking the series to a decisive game 3.

Early into Game 3, the Monarchs would get the first goal coming from William Johnson, who would add a second goal 2 minutes after his first. Halifax wouldn't be deterred, and Michael Fraser would cut the Monarchs' lead in half a few minutes later. The Highlanders would tie the game at 2 with a goal coming from Gordon Cameron about midway through the second period. The score would remain tied until the end of regulation, and the ultimate game of the series would need overtime. The two teams fought hard, but in the end, Charlottetown's Danny Evans would send the winning goal past Halifax's Tristan Campbell with less than a minute left, securing the Monarchs' spot in the Sound Cup Finals.[CHA wins 2-1]

1947 Sound Cup Finals Preview

Re: Eastern Canada Hockey Organization

1947 ECHO Offseason

Design Changes
Quebec Reds

The Reds have revealed their new logo, featuring a red Q with a white fleur-de-lis on top of it. The rationale behind the updated design is to promote unity between the French and English communities in the city by incorporating the French symbol, the Fleur-de-lis, for a team with an English name.

On both sets, the Reds have replaced the diagonal text with their new logo (which is colour swapped on the home set) and widened the hem stripe and also changed the number font.

C&C is appreciated, as always.
