The AHL announced a complete schedule for the 2013-2014 preseason. There are 33 games on the schedule. Each of the 30 AHL teams will play between one and four games. The preseason kicks off with the Utica Comets, a new addition to the league, traveling all the way up to Abbotsford on September 22nd. The final preseason game takes place on October 3rd with Utica once again taking part, this time playing the Hamilton Bulldogs.
The regular season kicks off the very next day, on October 4th, with 5 games on the schedule. As the rosters start to take shape and players get reassigned from their NHL camps, these preseason games give teams a chance to get ready for their season openers. It’s also a great chance for fans to see some of the prospects. Check out if any teams are playing in your area!
