The AHL's Board of Governors has concluded their Annual Meeting


Among the highlights: There are no changes to the North Division, where the Syracuse Crunch currently resides. Also, some teams will continue to play less games. However, the crossover rule has been eliminated. The governors also have enacted new jersey rules for home and away colors. In addition, there are new "staged fighting" rules, a new icing rule, and the elimination of the "dry scrape" of the ice prior to OT.
