AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF THE REMAINDER OF THE 2019-20 SEASONMay 11, 2020
SAN ANTONIO (May 11, 2020) – The American Hockey League today announced that the remainder of the 2019-20 AHL regular season and the 2020 Calder Cup Playoffs have been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. The decision was made after a vote by the AHL Board of Governors.
The San Antonio Rampage franchise was purchased by the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights in February. The franchise will now relocate to Nevada, serving as the AHL affiliate of the Golden Knights.
“We are grateful to every fan, partner, player, coach and staff member who contributed to the success of the Rampage in San Antonio,” said Frank Miceli, Spurs Sports & Entertainment Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Operations. “Over 18 seasons we witnessed some great hockey and, together, created a lot of wonderful memories. It breaks my heart that we can’t say thank you and goodbye to our fans in person at the AT&T Center.”
The AHL suspended play on March 12. The Rampage finish the 2019-20 season with a 24-25-7-5 record.
