With parts of the ECHL starting back up and as the NHL inches closer to finalizing a return-to-play plan, it feels like hockey could actually be right around the corner.
But what about the AHL? It’s been eerily quiet over there, no?
In late October, the American Hockey League announced it was pushing its start date back two additional months, to February 5th, in hopes of formulating the safest plan possible for the league’s return in 2021.
Since then, it feels as if there’s been little progress — or news — coming from the NHL’s feeder league. And that’s because it’s been a waiting game.
