Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the AHL, which includes the Milwaukee Admirals, announced Wednesday that the league was targeting a February 5 start date for the 2020-21 season.
From the AHL's press release, further details, such as the length of the season and number of games to be played, are still to be determined.
Here is the full release:
American Hockey League President and CEO Scott Howson has announced that the league’s Board of Governors has approved moving the anticipated start date of the 2020-21 season to February 5, 2021, due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis.
The AHL continues to work with its member clubs to monitor developments and local guidelines in all 31 league cities. Further details regarding the 2020-21 American Hockey League season are still to be determined.
In operation since 1936, the AHL serves as the top development league for 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.
