 This week on the Power Play Post Show, Hosts Bob Howard and Megan Reiff return during the hot summer to discuss all the latest news and information from around the American Hockey League. This week the two hosts breakdown the new AHL divisions as teams were shuffled around after the departure of the Calgary Flames team in Abbottsford which moved operations to Glens Falls after the Phantoms moved to their new home in Allentown, PA and all the effects of other teams moving due to those first two moves.

The AHL Board of Governors also made some rules changes for the upcoming American Hockey League season and Bob and Megan give their views on the new overtime, fighting and helmet rules. And to finish off the two hosts discuss a look at the eight AHL head coaching changes that have occurred in this off season.

This week’s special guest:

  • Alexandra Ackerman – Writer – Syracuse Crunch – Raw Charge/Chairman How’s Glorious Army – On Twitter: @Allovimo – Alex made her return to the Power Play Post Show to talk about the Syracuse Crunch‘s very off 2013-14 season which included many injuries, call-ups and situations that left the Crunch struggling most of the season.

Lastly Alex and Bob talked about the Crunch’s move from the East Division to the Northeast Division for the upcoming season and effects that it will now have on the scheduling for East and Northeast teams.
