Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins


Like that David Bowie song from the 70’s, the AHL landscape of affiliation swaps is a changin’.

I stayed tuned to the news today on the Twitter side, and it looks like everything is into place. Things can change, but I am cavalier enough and confident enough in whom I follow and whom they retweet to offer the following table:

AHL Team Old Parent Team New Parent Team
Rochester Americans Florida Panthers Buffalo Sabres
Portland Pirates Buffalo Sabres Phoenix Coyotes
Chicago Wolves Atlanta Thrashers* Vancouver Canucks
San Antonio Rampage Phoenix Coyotes Florida Panthers?**

* – The Thrashers moved to Winnipeg and will be named the Winnipeg Jets, who will affiliate with the new, yet to be named St. John’s, Newfoundland team.

** – Tampa Bay and Norfolk are not breaking up, and San Antonio and Florida are the last teams standing without affiliations, with all other teams currently spoken for.
