Inside AHL Hockey: players, owners moving toward resolution regarding CBA modification

Inside AHL Hockey’s Tony Androckitis has an update regarding the AHL’s proposal to the Professional Hockey Players’ Association regarding modifying the CBA for the shortened 2020-2021 AHL season:

The Professional Hockey Players Association (PHPA) approved the American Hockey League’s (AHL) latest proposal Friday, moving things one step further toward a resolution.

The approved changes to the league’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA) by the PHPA also needs approval from the league’s Board of Governors, which is set to meet on Monday.

A source with direct knowledge of these changes provided with plenty of insight on what was reportedly a three-page document sent from AHL President/CEO Scott Howson to PHPA Executive Director Larry Landon last Saturday with terms of a decision requested by Thursday at 11 a.m.

This document stated that, if accepted, it would supersede and replace the agreement made between the PHPA and AHL on June 2nd, which InsideAHLHockey first reported on earlier this week.

The document from Howson to Landon also said that in the event the proposal wasn’t approved that the AHL would operate under the terms of the June 2nd legally enforceable agremeent or not operate during the 2020-21 season as well as reseving all other rights available at law.
