In the pros: Connelly, Sterling hoist EBEL Cup


Playing catch-up on this one, but Brett Sterling won his second-straight Erste Bank Eishockey Liga championship with Red Bull Salzburg earlier this month alongside teammate and fellow former Colorado College standout Brian Connelly.

They won the best-of-seven series over Orli Znojmo, 4-2. 

The 12-team league has eight teams in Austria and one each in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy and Slovenia.

Salzburg won the title last year, defeating the Vienna Capitals in the EBEL championship series with now retired, current CC goaltending coach Matt Zaba between the pipes. Thanks to Mountain High Hockey for the heads up on this one.
