Drug Testing Program Implemented For The AHL

NEW YORK/SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (Aug. 28, 2014) – An education and drug testing program will be implemented for American Hockey League players, effective for the 2014-15 season, the National Hockey League and American Hockey League announced today.

The details of the AHL program, which was the result of a collaborative effort between the two leagues (NHL and AHL), the National Hockey League Players’ Association and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association (which represents AHL players in collective bargaining), substantially replicate the collectively bargained policies already in place for NHL players.

The AHL drug testing program will be administered by the doctors who supervise the NHL/NHLPA Performance-Enhancing Substances Program and the Substance Abuse/Behavioral Health Program.

You can tear your body into pieces playing hockey, and end up with the brain of a lobotomized patient but recreational drugs are very bad.
