The American Hockey League's target start date for the 2020-21 season is Dec. 4, but the league is preparing to offer another plan to its Board of Governors that could push it later.

"We're getting close to Dec. 4, and there's been minimal improvement as far as fan capacity," AHL president Scott Howson told ESPN this week. "The virus seems to be getting worse right now. The borders are still closed. We'll probably be going to our Board in the next two to three weeks with another plan."
