AHL ANNOUNCES PACIFIC DIVISION PLAYOFF DETAILS

May 7, 2021

SPRINGFIELD, MA – American Hockey League President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Howson today announced the format and schedule for the Pacific Division playoff tournament.

 

All seven teams will participate in the tournament to determine the division championship. The fourth through seventh place clubs in the regular-season standings will play a single-elimination play-in, held at FivePoint Arena in Irvine, Calif., to determine who will join the top three teams in the best-of-three semifinals.

 

The semifinal winners will advance to a best-of-three finals, with that winner being awarded the John D. Chick Trophy as champions of the Pacific Division; the Chick Trophy has been presented to an AHL division champion annually since 1961-62.
