Calgary Mustangs Granted Leave of Absence for 2019-2020 Season

May 8th, 2019 @ 11:37 am

The Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) Board of Governors has approved a request from the Calgary Mustangs Hockey Club to take a one-year leave of absence for the 2019-2020 Season.  The Mustangs will use the year to secure a sustainable future for the franchise either in Calgary, AB or through a relocation.

A decision regarding the current team roster will be finalized at the 2019 AJHL Annual General Meeting on Saturday, May 25th.  Under Hockey Canada regulations, all player movement is restricted from January 10th to June 3rd annually.

The Board of Governors also approved a new league schedule format, which will be temporarily implemented for the 2019-2020 AJHL season.  The league will reduce its regular season schedule from 60 games to 58 games as follows:

8 team North Division
• 2 games vs each team in the South Division (14)
• 2 games at AJHL Showcase (2)
• 6 games vs each team within the North Division (42)

7 team South Division
• 2 games vs each team in the North Division (16)
• 2 games at AJHL Showcase (2)
• 6 games vs each team within the South Division (36)
• 4 additional games within the South Division versus four different opponents (4)

A revised format for the 2020 Inter Pipeline AJHL Playoffs will also be determined at the 2019 AJHL Annual General Meeting to accommodate a 15 team league with two unbalanced divisions.

The Calgary Mustangs Hockey Club will remain a member of the Alberta Junior Hockey League throughout the 2019-2020 season and retain a vote in all matters of the AJHL Board of Governors.
