American Hockey League

The American Hockey League, like the NHL, is a coast-to-coast, international league. Unlike the NHL, there is no looming threat of a work stoppage.

With that foreboding, we bring you the American Hockey League season schedule [downloadable .pdf].

Two outdoor games are on the 2012-13 AHL schedule.

On Dec. 30, the Grand Rapids Griffins will take on the Toronto Marlies at Comerica Park in Detroit, part of the Hockeytown Winter Festival leading up to the scheduled NHL Winter Classic.

On Jan. 20, the Hershey Bears, as part of the celebration of the franchise’s 75th AHL season, will host the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at Hersheypark Stadium.
