Special Games/eventsEdit

The Syracuse Crunch announced on June 11, 2014 that they will play the Utica Comets at the Carrier Dome, on the campus Syracuse University in an event called the "Frozen Dome Classic". The ice surface will be setup in the basketball configuration which will give it a capacity of over 30,000.  The game drew a crowd of 30,715.  This event broke record for the largest indoor crowd at a professional hockey game in the United States, which was previously a crowd of 28,183 on April 23, 1996 for a Stanley Cup Playoffs game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Philadelphia Flyers.  The previous largest indoor attendance record for the AHL was 20,672 for a game between the Carolina Monarchs and the Kentucky Thoroughblades at the Greensboro Coliseum on January 18, 1997.  There was also a NCAA Division III game between the Utica College Pioneers and the Oswego State Lakers, as well as a game between law enforcement officials from Syracuse and Utica as part of the day long event.

Major franchise shifts for 2015-16Edit

Late in January 2015 the league annouced the league's Board of Gevernors approved the formation of a Pacific Division for the 2015-16 season with the Norfolk Admirals being relocated to San Diego, California; the Manchester Monarchs being relocated to Ontario, California, the Worcester Sharks being relocated to San Jose, California, the Adirondack Flames being relocated to Stockton, California.  The ownership of the Oklahoma City Barons announced previously that they were ceasing operations after losing their affiliation with the Edmonton Oilers.  The Oilers purchased the Bakersfield Condors franchise in the ECHL and were making Bakersfield, California the home of their AHL affiliate. In March, the Winnipeg Jets annouced the were relocating their AHL affilliate from St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador to Winnipeg as the Manitoba Moose, and the Montreal Canadiens purchased the Hamilton Bulldogs franchise and relocated them to St. John's.  Both of the moves are believed to be temporary as Winnipeg may be relocating their affiliation to Thunder Bay, Ontario if and when a new arena opens there and the Canadiens are waiting for an arena to open in Laval, Quebec to move their affiliate. The former owner of the Hamilton AHL franchise purchased the Belleville Bulls and will relocate the team to Hamilton asuming the Bulldogs identity.
