Source: Increasing optimism for the 2020-21 AHL season

A number of sources have informed Colorado Hockey Now of rumblings about a potential return-to-play plan, and an increasing optimism that there will in fact be a 2020-21 AHL season. 

“I really do think that we will play,” a close source said, before laying out an off-the-record plan that’s been tossed around.

One thing that is becoming increasingly apparent, however, is that is that the AHL won’t start on Dec. 4, as was the original hope. It certainly won’t start before the NHL’s season, which commissioner Gary Bettman recently said he’s targeting for a January 1st start date.
