Are the Arizona Coyotes moving their AHL affiliate to Springfield next season?

With the news that the Florida Panthers will be moving their AHL affiliate from San Antonio to Portland beginning next season, fans of the San Antonio Rampage are wondering who will be partnered with their club next year. The Arizona Coyotes, Colorado Avalanche and Washington Capitals all have expiring AHL deals at the end of the current season. So are the ‘Yotes returning to the Alamo City?

Not so fast.

According to Rochester play-by-play announcer Rob Sanderson, the Arizona Coyotes will switch their AHL affiliate from the Portland Pirates to the Springfield Falcons beginning next season. Springfield currently is affiliated with the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets, who may want to move to make travels easier for players.


So where does this leave the Silver and Black? Sanderson reports the Rampage will affiliate with the Colorado Avalanche in the 2015-16 season. If the move happens, it would be the first time in franchise history that Spurs Sports and Entertainment would work with Colorado.

Of course, nothing is confirmed at this point. Keep clicking to Rampage Central or follow us on Twitter to get the latest news on the affiliate changes.
