The American Hockey League has finally provided some clarity in terms of scheduling for its *five* Canadian clubs. With Calgary’s affiliate, Stockton, now officially moving north of the 49th parallel for the 2020-21 season, the AHL will have three clubs based out of eastern Canada, while the Heat will play out of Alberta’s Saddledome, and the Moose will play out of Bell MTS Place.

Despite many scheduling uncertainties surrounding the duration of the season, the league has provided the Moose and the four other Canadian Division teams their opening month’s schedule. Manitoba Joins Toronto and Laval as the three clubs to feature eight games to start the season. Belleville and Stockton each play just four times in February.
Manitoba’s eight games, however, come in a 13-day stretch, meaning the team plays much more often than every second day. Opening the season on Monday, February 15 against the Toronto Marlies at home, the Moose host Toronto three more times (February 16, 18 and 19), before travelling to Laval for another four-game set against the Rocket in Quebec (February 22, 24, 26, 27).
Playing on every day of week except for Sunday, Manitoba will see a variety of different start times in February. All games will be broadcasted live on MooseHockey.com and AHL TV. Radio broadcasts will be aired live on CJOB 680, beginning 15 minutes prior to puck drop.
