  • Overview

    American Hockey League President/CEO Scott Howson has announced that the league’s Board of Governors has 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 continues to work with its member clubs to monitor developments and local guidelines in all 31 league cities. Further details regarding the 2020-21 American Hockey League season are still to be determined.

    "Iowa Wild fully supports the AHL's decision to postpone the start of the 2020-21 season," says Team President Todd Frederickson. "We are eagerly waiting for the start of the season and will continue to work on plans to bring hockey back quickly and safely for our fans, players, and staff. I would like to personally thank our fans and partners for their patience and understanding."

    In operation since 1936, the AHL serves as the top development league for all 31 National Hockey League teams. Nearly 90 percent of today’s NHL players are American Hockey League graduates, and more than 100 honored members of the Hockey Hall of Fame spent time in the AHL in their careers.
