STEELHEADS POWER RANKINGS: Scoring leaders in the ECHL era

This is the weekly edition of Idaho Steelheads Power Rankings, where we at IdahoSteelheads.com will see where the Steelheads and their players rank among the best of the best in the ECHL.

The Steelheads have had some incredible scoring talent through the years, and two current Steelheads are climbing the list. Rob Linsmayer and Jefferson Dahl have both topped the 100 point mark for their Steelheads career, and both forwards have also moved into the Top 10 in Steelheads scoring during the ECHL era. Let’ take a look at the top-5 scorers for Idaho since the 2003-04 season!

5) Scott Burt – 144 points

A veteran of 739 professional hockey games, Scott Burt played some of his best hockey in Idaho. Burt played seven seasons as a Steelhead, including three years during the West Coast Hockey League days. Counting his performance in the WCHL, Burt scored 111 goals and 250 points in 403 regular season games. Burt also belongs to a very exclusive club, playing for both Steelheads Kelly Cup teams in 2004 and 2007. Burt played 78 playoff games with Idaho, recording 30 points.

4) Mark Derlago – 173 points

It’s difficult to determine which figure is more impressive, Mark Derlago’s spot on this list or the time frame in which he accomplished the feat.  Derlago played two seasons with Idaho, 127 regular season games, and he was unstoppable. Derlago holds Idaho’s single-season ECHL records for goals in a season (45 in 2010-11), points (92 in 2009-10), and plus/minus  (plus-34 in 2009-10). Derlago is the only Steelhead to break the 40-goal mark in an ECHL season, and he did it twice. He had two separate points streaks of 11 and 15 games in 2009-10, three 5-point games as a Steelhead, four hat tricks, and a four-goal games. Derlago scored five goals and 12 points for Idaho in the 2010 Kelly Cup playoffs to help lead Idaho to the Final.

3) Darrell Hay – 197 points

Darrell Hay leads all defensemen in Steelheads ECHL history after an impressive five-year Steelheads career. Hay never had fewer than 36 points in a season, topping out at 45 points in 2007-08. Hay was an integral member of the 2007 Kelly Cup team, recording nine points in 16 playoff games and notching a plus-9 rating. Hay, now in his first full year of assistant coaching with the BCHL’s Salmon Arm Silverbacks,  is the only defenseman in the top-10 in Steelheads ECHL scoring.

2) Lance Galbraith – 210 points

Another two-time Kelly Cup champion with the Steelheads and a fan favorite, Lance Galbraith is the only Steelhead in the ECHL era to surpass 200 points and 500 penalty minutes, collecting 1,071 penalty minutes with Idaho. Galbraith played four seasons in Idaho, his best years in 2006-07 and 2007-08 when he netted 64 and 67 points respectively, better than a point-per-game. Galbraith dominated for Idaho on their run to the 2007 Kelly Cup, recording 11 goals and 27 points in 21 playoff games.

1) Marty Flichel– 408 points

Nearly lapping the field, Idaho’s all-time leading scorer is the captain, Marty Flichel. Flichel played one season for Idaho during the WCHL days as well, bringing his all-time Steelheads points total to 475 points in 497 games. Flichel was better than a point-per-game player in three of his nine Steelheads season, and he’s the franchise’s leader in goals, assists, points, and games played. Flichel also played a key role in Idaho’s 2007 Kelly Cup championship, scoring 22 points in 22 games. Flichel’s number 16 is the most recently retired jersey by the Steelheads, hung at CenturyLink Arena on January 17, 2015.
