Report: AHL shakeup could help Ducks.

A story posted today at SBNation.com insinuated that the Ducks might not be without an American Hockey League affiliate much longer.


Entitled “AHL Shakeup Coming?”, the story said that AHL Commissioner David Andrews has a couple possibilities on the horizon. One would see the Iowa Chops re-activated under new ownership, and renewing its affiliation with Anaheim. The Des Moines-based team failed to make payments owed the Ducks and thenwas booted from the league, after its owners encountered financial difficulties.

Andrews also told SBNation thatthe Texas Stars are only temporarily associated with the Dallas Stars and, if the affiliation isn’t made permanent, the league will not exempt the franchise and it may cease operations.
