The history of the AHL
The AHL traces its origins directly to two predecessor professional leagues: the Canadian-American Hockey League the “Can-Am” League, founded in 1926, and the first International Hockey League, established in 1929.
After two seasons of interlocking play, the governors of the two leagues’ seven active teams met in New York City on June 28, 1938, and agreed that it was time to formally consolidate. Maurice Podoloff of New Haven, the former head of the Can-Am League, was elected the I-AHL’s first president. The former IHL president, John Chick of Windsor, Ontario, became vice-president in charge of officials. You can find more information about AHL on their official website.
Since the 2010–11 season, every team in the league has an affiliation agreement with one NHL team. If NHL teams do not have an AHL affiliate, players are assigned to AHL teams affiliated with other NHL teams. Twenty-seven AHL teams are located in the United States and the remaining four are in Canada. It`s very popular among gamblers and all bookies offers AHL odds.
Format of the AHL
The league consists 31 teams that are divide in two conferences and four divisions. Atlantic and North division are part of Eastern Conference while
Central and Pacific division are part of Western conference. Regular Season runs from October to April. After the regular season, the best 16 placed teams play in the Calder Cup playoffs. The winner of Calder Cup playoffs became the Champion.
The top four teams in each division make the playoffs with an important exception: If the fifth-place team in the Atlantic or Central divisions finishes with a higher points percentage than the fourth-place team in either the North or Pacific divisions, that team would cross over and compete in that Western Conference division’s rounds. Before start of every season there is different variations of AHL odds for champion, MVP player etc.
Just like the NHL, the AHL is going to a five-minute overtime of three-on-three, and then to shootout if necessary. The league used three-on-three last season after playing the first four minute of a seven-minute overtime four-on-four, which resulted in about 75 percent of overtime games decided before getting to shootout. Games tied after the draining three-on-three will be decided by a three-man shootout. Most bookies offers AHL odds without including overtime.
