AHL on TV?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if AHL games will be televised this season? I'm going to the Wolf*Pack home opener tommorrow night and wanted to know if anybody watches and knows stations that carry the game.

If you do, I'll be wearing my green Whalers hoodie which I just won off of eBay. :D

I was very happy this morning when I looked in the sports section to see today's college football telecast lineup, and saw the Wolfpack game listed.

Good move by MSG to get some hockey on the air while the NHL continues to be snooty.

Fox Sports Net Ohio always brodcasts Blue Jackets games. I wouldnt mind seeing the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks on FSNO, I wouldnt even mind if I saw the Cleveland Barons either.

That would be cool if they had it on tv. Im outside milwaukee, so I would go from not having a team in the NHL, to a team, which is the defending AHL champions, playing on tv. that would be pretty sweet. I also heard something about NHL players playing on their AHL teams. I dont really follow hockey all that much, what truth is there to that? Im sure if it were true, it would help the tv argument

I just go to Indiana Ice games, and let me tell ya something these amatures play some great hockey. Its some of the best I've ever seen. I wish the would show the games on tv. But I think in markets that have AHL teams, their games should be shown in lieu of NHL games. By the way, flynn's Ice logo looks great in action.

If you visit AHL.com you can listen to just about any game live on cybercast.

There's not much on tv where I live as a opposed to Canada, but I frequently go to games in person anyway.
