Breaking News: 2020-21 AHL Season start date has been moved back to February 5th

Earlier on Wednesday, American Hockey League (AHL) President and CEO Scott Howson announced that the league’s Board of Governors had approved moving the anticipated start date of the 2020-21 season to February 5, 2021, due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis.

The AHL had previously planned to return to the ice on December 4, 2020 to start next season.

Unfortunately, the AHL was forced to cancel its 2019-20 season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and did not name a Calder Cup champion for the first time since 1937.

The league says further details about the upcoming campaign have yet to be determined.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
