Default More AHL shuffling for 2018-19

Colorado announced today that they are moving their AHL affiliate from San Antonio and the ECHL Colorado Eagles will become their new AHL affiliate starting 2018-19.

St. Louis announced that they have signed a 5 year affiliation agreement with San Antonio starting to 2018-19. They have already sent some prospects there this season.

Colorado and San Antonio will play in the Pacific division next season. Which hopefully means a slightly more diverse schedule next season for Stockton and the rest of the Pacific Division.

Did they announce any other changes to the Pacific Division? Seems odd that there would be 9 teams in that division and 7 in the Central.

If that was the case, I'd hope that they consider changing the playoff format at least.

I love when NHL teams have their respective AHL teams in the same province/state. Travel is better for the players during call-ups, recalls are usually quicker, and fans get more familiar and invested in the organizational talent - both current and future.

Wish Calgary could have a similar arrangement, I can't imagine Stockton is all that convenient. However, it does make sense that the other Pacific teams are also hosting their baby teams in California.
