NHL / AHL Map — NHL, AHL, ECHL Affiliations (Plus other Goodies)

Finally, an update. After wanting to get to this forever (due to my amazing, and amazingly distracting daughters (I have two now)), I’ve been able to update this map/infographic/thing that shows how the major and minor professional hockey leagues in North American fit together. The NHL, AHL and ECHL are all connected (sort of). There are other leagues too, that get a nod, but those are the “big three” when it comes to professional hockey in the US and Canada. Enjoy.

NOTE: These data reflect things as of the AUGUST 11, 2015 for the upcoming season… more changes are probably coming, so updates will have to be made again… Yay.
