The 1986 Calder Cup Playoffs of the American Hockey League began on April 9, 1986.[1] The eight teams that qualified, four from each division, played best-of-7 series for Division Semifinals and Division Finals. The division champions played a best-of-7 series for the Calder Cup. The Calder Cup Final ended on May 21, 1986 with the Adirondack Red Wings defeating the Hershey Bears four games to two to win the Calder Cup for the second time in team history.[2] Hershey's Tim Tookey won the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as AHL playoff MVP, becoming the first player from the losing finalist to win the award.[3]

In each round, the team that earned more points during the regular season receives home ice advantage, meaning they receive the "extra" game on home-ice if the series reaches the maximum number of games. There is no set series format due to arena scheduling conflicts and travel considerations.[5]
