Steve Yzerman said : “Based on the environment right now, I think it’s very reasonable to expect them to start to play sometime in the new year,” “What the league and schedule looks like and how many teams actually play is uncertain right now as every team has to decide their individual business model and their business model is different than the National Hockey League. Even more so than the NHL, (the AHL) is fan-driven, the basis for their revenue is having people in the building. The biggest challenge the American League faces is if they get any fans in the building and if there’s zero fans, do they want to and can they operate? That’s yet to be determined” External link

Even more so than the NHL, (the AHL) is fan-driven, the basis for their revenue is having people in the building. The biggest challenge the American League faces is if they get any fans in the building and if there’s zero fans, do they want to and can they operate? That’s yet to be determined” External link
