NHL Affiliate Status Report – Charlotte Checkers Hockey


While we are aware that the Carolina Hurricanes are about to sign an affiliation agreement with the AHL Chicago Wolves, the Hurricanes have had little dialogue with us on this matter. At a time when the NHL teams value affiliations with a closer proximity between the two clubs, we understand the confusion that such a decision would cause.

We will explore other options for membership and look forward to continuing in the American Hockey League when the game resumes.
