The American Hockey League (AHL) schedule is about to get very interesting when the puck drops on the 2015-16 season in the fall.

According to Jon Rosen, the AHL’s new five California based teams will play a total of 68 games next season, while the rest of the league plays 76. In January, the league announced a new Pacific Division that includes five California teams: San Diego (Anaheim Ducks), Stockton (Calgary Flames), Bakersfield (Edmonton Oilers), Ontario (L.A. Kings) and San Jose (San Jose Sharks).

The San Antonio Rampage and Texas Stars will also play in the Pacific Division next season and will play 76 games.


Rosen also says AHL President and CEO Dave Andrew cites travel costs and limiting the number of three games in three nights were the reason for the schedule change.

AHL plans on seeding, playoffs standings will be determined in a summer meeting in July.
