Season 2 of Around The A is finally here!
The NHL’s top developmental league starts its regular season on Friday, February 5th, and David Foot and Patrick Williams will break down all of the latest developments on that front.
This week we analyze the new AHL-PHPA collective bargaining agreement and have an exclusive 1-on-1 interview with PHPA executive director Larry Landon. We also examine the Stockton Heat temporarily shifting operations to Calgary, the latest on the Canadian Division, and a challenging week for the San Jose Barracuda.
We have all of that plus thoughts from Lehigh Valley Phantoms head coach Scott Gordon and a 2020-21 AHL season preview!
