Costello records third straight 100-point season

Allen’s Chad Costello reached the 100-point plateau for the third consecutive season on Sunday against Rapid City. The two-time defending ECHL scoring champion once again leads the league this season with 100 points (28g-72a) in 56 games.

Costello is just the third player in the ECHL’s 29-year history to post three consecutive seasons of at least 100 points. He joins John Spoltore, a 2014 inductee into the ECHL Hall of Fame, who posted at least 100 points from 1997-98 through 1999-00 with Louisiana, and Trevor Jobe, who reached the century mark with Nashville and Richmond from 1990-91 through 1992-93.

Costello’s three seasons of 100 or more points is tied for the second most in league history with Jobe and 2015 ECHL Hall of Fame inductee Darren Colbourne (1991-92, 1993-94 and 1996-97). Spoltore holds the league record with four 100-point seasons.
