Florida wins Brabham Cup title

The Florida Everblades clinched the 2020-21 Brabham Cup championship on Saturday by virtue of their 4-3 win at Orlando.

The Brabham Cup is the trophy awarded annually to the ECHL team that finishes with the best record in the regular season. The recipient is guaranteed home-ice advantage throughout its participation in the Kelly Cup Playoffs.  

With the win, Florida improved its record to 42-19-8 for a .667 points percentage and captures the ECHL regular-season title for the fourth time in team history. The Everblades previously earned the Brabham Cup in 1999-2000, 2008-09 and 2017-18. The four Brabham Cup titles are the second most in ECHL history, behind the Alaska Aces, who won the regular-season title five times.

Florida captured the Eastern Conference regular-season title, and has qualified for the Kelly Cup Playoffs for the 21st time since joining the ECHL in 1998-99. The Everblades won the Kelly Cup title in 2012, and have advanced to the Finals in 2004, 2005 and 2018.

The award is named in recognition of Henry Brabham, who co-founded the ECHL in 1988-89 with five teams in four states. Brabham, who was the first inductee into the ECHL Hall of Fame in 2008, owned three of the original five teams. The dedication of the Virginia businessman was crucial to the league surviving to span from coast-to-coast while advancing nearly 700 players and countless coaches, on-ice officials and front office personnel to the National Hockey League.
