Two months after all major sports had their seasons postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Hockey League has officially canceled the remained of the 2019-2020 season. This decision was made by the league’s Board of Governors on Monday, May 11th. All remaining regular-season games are canceled, and the 2020 Calder Cup Playoffs will not be held.

The National Hockey League has not yet made an announcement about whether or not the 2019-20 season will continue.

According to the announcement on the official AHL website, the league standings as of March 12th will be final. Awards will be based on these standings and final statistics. This leaves the Milwaukee Admirals of the Central Division as the top team in the league with a record of 41-14-5-3 and the Providence Bruins (38-18-3-3) as the best of the Eastern Conference.

With the season now canceled, AHL teams and players will begin to prepare for the 2020-21 season in hopes that it will continue as scheduled. Though this is a very disappointing development for players and fans alike, it is important for league officials to prioritize the safety of everyone involved. The AHL will return when it is safe to do so.
