All-American Hockey League

The All-American Hockey League was a minor league hockey organization formed in 1972 with teams based in the Upper Midwest and Great lakes regions of the United States as the Continental Hockey League. In 1986 the league folded and the Danville, Dayton, Troy went on to form the All-American Hockey League. In 1987, the All-American Hockey League merged with the Atlantic Coast Hockey League after a single season in the AAHL. Carolina, Johnstown, Virginia left the league to form the East Coast Hockey League[1]. The AAHL only lasted one more season and folded after the 1988-1989 season[2].

The All-American Hockey League (1972–1988) is not to be confused with the All American Hockey League that was formed in 2008 and is a lower level professional ice hockey league with teams in the Midwestern United States. That league was formed in 2008 as the All American Hockey Association when the Battle Creek Revolution and South Shore Shooters (later the Chi-Town Shooters) of the Mid-Atlantic Hockey League banded together with the Evansville IceMen and Motor City Gamblers (later the Detroit Dragons) of the Midwest Hockey League. On April 14, 2009, the All American Hockey League Board of Directors announced a reorganization from a Association format to a League format. This resulted in the All American Hockey Association being renamed the All American Hockey League.[3]
