Marty Flichel: Face of the Idaho Steelheads
Playing in 800 professional games is a huge milestone for any athlete, and two weeks ago in Colorado, Idaho Steelheads Captain Marty Flichel achieved that milestone.
The 5-foot-11-inch, 195-pound right wing has played professionally for a total of 16 years-nine of those seasons have been with the Idaho Steelheads, East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) affiliate of the Dallas Stars.
"This is a fairly big accomplishment, but I was unaware of it being my 800th game," explained the humble captain. Flichel has no intentions of slowing down now, going on to say, "I'm not stopping at 800 games."
Growing up in the hockey country of Canada, hockey became natural to "Flich" (pronounced "Flick"). He learned how to skate by the age of two and began playing hockey when he was four.
Along with his recent accomplishment, Flichel has achieved many top awards such as the ECHL player of the week (multiple times) and was selected to ECHL's All Decade team.
Although his greatest accomplishment occurred back in 2006-2007 when the Steelheads beat the Dayton Bombers for the Kelly Cup.
Following this season, Marty was named to the All-ECHL First Team, becoming the first Steelhead to reach this accomplishment.
As team captain, Flichel serves as a mentor for some of the younger players and puts forth effort to help them become better players. Teammate and left wing Michael Neal describes Flichel as a team-first kind of guy, a good role model and a motivator.
"Marty is a guy to have in the locker room and he's fun to goof around with. (He's) the face of the Idaho Steelheads."
"(Hockey's an) action sport with a lot of excitement," Flichel said. "To watch a game on television does not give it justice."
Flichel encourages anyone who has not been to a game yet to come check one out and support the local Idaho Steelheads.

Milestones keep coming for Flichel Monday, March 22, 2010
(Boise, ID) - The career milestones are starting to build up for longtime Idaho Steelheads captain Marty Flichel.
The 34-year-old forward notched his 400th point as a Steelhead last week when he assisted on an Adam Huxley goal against the Utah Grizzlies at Qwest Arena.
In January, Flichel became the leading scorer in the history of the Idaho Steelheads, spanning both the ECHL and WCHL eras. Prior to that, he had netted his 250th professional goal in North America on November 6, also against the Utah Grizzlies.
Flichel made his professional debut for the ECHL's Dayton Bombers during the 1996-97 season. He's skating in his 12th season in North America, also having played two years overseas. The IHL's Michigan K-Wings (now the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings) and WCHL's Tacoma Sabercats also employed Flichel along the way. He first joined the Steelheads in 2002-2003, when the team was still in the WCHL, returning to the team for good at the start of the 2004-2005 season. This is his seventh season with Idaho.
Flichel has 651 professional points in North America, meaning the countdown to 700 is on.

I happened to catch that the Steelheads did not renew the contract of longtime captain Marty Flichel. One TV station reported the Steelheads as saying Flichel was offered an assistant coaching position (after being turned down for the head coaching position). The report I saw interviewed Flichel; he stated that he approached the Steelheads about an assistant position, they came back with a number way too low for him.
