2018 preseason schedule set

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today its composite 2018 preseason schedule, leading up to the start of the league’s 83rd campaign next month.

The AHL enters the 2018-19 season with an all-time high of 31 teams, including the first-year Colorado Eagles.

In operation since 1936, the American Hockey League serves as the top development league for the players, coaches, managers, executives, broadcasters and staff of 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.
