John Spoltore, who passed away in 2010, made his mark on the ECHL Record Book while playing with the Louisiana Ice Gators from 1995-96 through 2000-01. He scored an amazing 532 points (142g-390a) in just 275 career ECHL games, an average of 1.93 points-per-game, and his 390 assists are tied for the third most in League history. His 1.15 assists-per-game average ranks tops in ECHL history and he fell just one assist shy of tying the League’s single-season assist record when he recorded 92 during the 1999-2000 season. He was named to the All-ECHL Second Team in 1997-98 before earning a spot on the All-ECHL First Team in each of the next two seasons. Spoltore represented the Ice Gators in the 1999 and 2000 ECHL All-Star Games, and he earned a Calder Cup title with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League in 1999 after tallying 12 points (6g-6a) in 11 postseason contests.
