ahl06_200.jpgIt might be the busiest few days of the American Hockey League season.

The NHL trade deadline has come and gome, to be followed next week by the AHL’s own Clear Day deadline, when all 29 teams have to submit their 22-man Clear Day lists.

The 2009 Clear Day deadline is Wednesday, March 11, at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Only those players listed on a team’s Clear Day roster are eligible to compete in the remainder of the AHL regular season and in the 2009 Calder Cup Playoffs, unless emergency conditions arise as a result of recall, injury or suspension.

Teams may also add signed junior players or players on amateur tryout contracts after Clear Day, but only once their respective junior or college seasons are complete.
