AHL Approves Structural Framework For Season That Will Begin on February 5


The American Hockey League (AHL) announced on Wednesday that the league’s Board of Governors has approved the structural framework for an AHL season that will begin on February 5, 2021.

FROM AHL


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … Following is a statement from American Hockey League President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Howson regarding the league’s 2020-21 season:

“The American Hockey League Board of Governors has approved the structural framework for an AHL season that will begin on February 5, 2021.

“Details are still being worked out, but this step allows our teams and their National Hockey League partners to better determine their plans for the coming season. We look forward to dropping the puck on Feb. 5.


NHL teams will be opening training camps this week, and conclude by the 13th of January. Assuming the AHL holds a 7-10 day training camp before the start of their season on February 5th, that leaves a two week period in between the end of NHL camp and the start of AHL camps.
