Suspension of Play[edit | edit source]
The league released the following statement on March 12, 2020: With the health and safety of our players, officials, staff and fans of primary importance, the American Hockey League has announced the suspension of play until further notice, effective immediately, due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

On May 11, 2020 the league officially announced that the balance of the season would be cancelled.
