We are very excited to get back to the level of development that two hours of ice a week provide. However, please remember that as our new reality changes with the COVID-19 situation, additional changes could occur. Regardless of what the pandemic throws at us we know that all members of the AMHL family will work together to ensure a fun, and safe return to hockey for e
