American Hockey League President Dave Andrews gave his annual address yesterday on the state of the AHL. He covered numerous topics, including:
- The league’s interest in doing an annual outdoor game to showcase the sport, given the success of the NHL’s game in Buffalo
- The possibility of shortening the AHL season schedule to 72 games, and soliciting “cost share” help from the NHL in order to make up lost revenues
- The fact that the AHL is “closer than ever before to having 30 teams, each one paired with an NHL affiliate. The league currently has 29 teams, and a new team in Austin, Texas, is a very real possibility.”
More details here, primarily on the potential of the outdoor game.
