    Here's the (mostly) complete list. I still need to confirm some agreement lengths and I'm not 100% sure about Ottawa and Wichita [their only ECHL assignment so far had been to Brampton]).

    Their original affiliation was announced as a single-year agreement. I doubt the W'Thunder would've extended that once the EDM/BAK agreement was signed.

    BTW: At the single and double-A levels of hockey, most team media/communications directors and/or staff members are quite responsive to questions regarding such simple things as affiliations (once the agreements are made public). So if you remain unsure about certain relationships, you could send an E-mail to the lower-level team and have a pretty good chance of a response. Mentioning that you're seeking the info on behalf of a large group of hockey fans (as moderator of a fan message board) could improve your chances of a helpful response, because the recipient is likely to see it as a chance to drum up interest - read: "ticket sales" - for their team.
