Exactly 2 months since the Binghamton Devils played their last game, the American Hockey League has officially canceled the remainder of the 2019-2020 season. 

In a statement, the AHL says after a lengthy review process the completion of the season is not feasible in light of current conditions. They are now focused on preparing for the 2020-21 season. Before the hiatus occurred, the Devils were sitting in a playoff spot with a record of 34-24-4, riding a 7 game win streak and boasting the best record in the AHL since Christmas. Head Coach Mark Dennehy says while he completely understands the decision, it is a sad day for Binghamton hockey. 

“Disappointed for the players first and foremost,” says Dennehy. “I’m tracking their training and these guys are still working out and trying to stay as ready as they can. I’m disappointed for Binghamton, it’s been a while since they’ve had a playoff team, and not only did I think we had  playoff team I think we had a team that could make a deep run.” 

As of now, there is no word on potential changes for next season. Fans with questions regarding tickets can check out the Devils website here.
