Another one bites the dust. The American Hockey League has made the decision to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2020 Calder Cup Playoffs will also be canceled, according to AHL President and Chief Executive Officer David Andrews.

The standings and statistics recorded as of March 12 are considered final and official and will be used to determine 2019-20 league awards.

Those standings show that the Milwaukee Admirals end the season at the top of the league with a record of 41-14-5-3, good for 91 points and a .714 points percentage. That being said, the Ads are taking home regular season titles for the Central Division, Western Conference, and the entire AHL.

The Admirals have been top of the league since their team record 13-game winning streak from Nov. 2 to Dec. 1. They end this 50th season of hockey with the most wins, fewest regulation losses, highest points percentage, and the only team with at least 90 points.

The American Hockey League will now shift focus to the upcoming 2020-21 season.
