In operation since 1936, the American Hockey League continues to serve as the top development league for the players, coaches, managers, trainers, executives and broadcasters of all 31 National Hockey League teams. Nearly 90 percent of NHL players each year are AHL graduates – including stars such as P.K. Subban, Braden Holtby, Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson and Carey Price – and more than 100 honored members of the Hockey Hall of Fame developed in the AHL – among them Johnny Bower, Terry Sawchuk, Larry Robinson, Patrick Roy and Brett Hull.
