ECHL mourns loss of Hall of Fame Member Bermingham

The ECHL and its member teams mourn the loss and express their condolences to the family and friends of former player Jim Bermingham, who has passed away at the age of 51.

Bermingham skated in 500 career games with Toledo, Wheeling, Huntington, Jackson and Pensacola from 1992-2001. He ranks 11th in ECHL history with 588 points, 14th with 362 assists and tied for 16th with 226 goals. Bermingham scored at least 29 goals in five of his nine ECHL seasons, and over the course of his career, he was selected to play in three ECHL All-Star Games (1996, 1998 and 1999) which is tied for the fifth most in league history.

He was inducted into the ECHL Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2019. Following his retirement as a player, he served as head coach of the Southern Professional Hockey League's Knoxville Ice Bears from 2003-07.
