Despite the shortened season will the AHL still name division champions and hand out other individual honors?
The AHL will crown division champions and announce year end awards just like usual. We will be Pacific Division Champions for the second time in three seasons and feel that we have several candidates for the other honors and all league teams.

What if I had tickets for one of the six cancelled games?
If you had season, partial plan, flex, or group tickets for one (or more) of the six cancelled games, you can carry that purchase to the 2020-2021 season as an account credit or the tickets can be donated to our Health Care Heroes Night. Both options include a $25 gift card to be used on your choice of Roadrunners merchandise or food and beverage at the TCC. Single-game tickets will be automatically refunded to the card that was used for purchase.
For Season Ticket Members, if you choose the account credit, it can be applied to your current payment plans, it can be added to your account to use for group tickets to bring out family and friends, it can be used for an on-ice suite night for a game next season, and it can be used to add additional seats to your plan. For partial plan members, you can use the balance from those games towards your partial plan, season ticket, or group night package for next season. For flex plan members, your unused vouchers can also be used for a ticket package next season. If you had group tickets, you can select any game next season to bring your group out or you can use the credit towards a season or partial-season plan.
