ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The American Hockey League announced that the 2020-21 season will begin no earlier than Dec. 4.

The decision was made for the benefit of health and safety as the league monitors developments across cities in both the United States and Canada.

The league’s Board of Governors approved the delayed start date during its annual meeting.

The Amerks normally open their season in October. Other than health concerns, the resumed 2019-20 NHL season will play into October due to the four-month pause.
