The 2009–10 AHL season will be the 74th season of the American Hockey League. There are twenty-nine teams slated to play with the addition of one new team, the relocation of two others, and the involuntary suspension of another. Each team will play 80 games from October 2 to April 11.

League businessEdit

European pre-season openersEdit

On June 11, 2009, both the Hamilton Bulldogs and the Toronto Marlies were invited to participate in a four-team preseason tournament in Edinburgh, Scotland, to celebrate Scotland’s contribution to the game of ice hockey.

The Edinburgh Capitals, Scotland’s only Elite Ice Hockey team, hosted the tournament from September 24-27. The Bulldogs and Marlies played the Capitals and the Belfast Giants in order to win the Gardiner Cup. Hamilton defeated Toronto in the final.

Playoff formatEdit

The top four teams from each division will play for the Calder Cup. The exception is that if the fifth-place team in the Atlantic Division finishes better than the fourth-place team in the East Division, they will assume the fourth playoff spot in the East Division.
