The AHL On The NHL Network

NEW YORK (October 13, 2010) – The NHL Network U.S. will put the developing talents of many of the game’s top young players on display this season when it broadcasts 10 American Hockey League games in partnership with the AHL.

Beginning on Oct. 17, when the Toronto Marlies play host to the Binghamton Senators, the NHL Network will broadcast 10 Sunday afternoon games.

The AHL is the sole primary development league for all 30 NHL Clubs and over 85 percent of current NHL players are AHL alumni – including 2010 Vezina Trophy winner Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres, who was 2005 AHL goaltender of the year for Rochester, and 2010 Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks, who played two AHL seasons with Norfolk.

In addition to Toronto and Binghamton, future NHL Network broadcasts of AHL games will feature the Hamilton Bulldogs, Abbotsford Heat, Manitoba Moose and the inaugural edition of the Oklahoma City Barons.

Awesome.  A full slate of teams I don’t care about.

Wake me when they show teams someone will actually watch.

Free hint:  It’s not Manitoba Toronto, and Hamilton.
