AHL, Board of Directors approve franchise transactions

Two AHL transactions were approved a couple of weeks ago and they are the following:
• The relocation of the franchise owned by the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild from Houston, Texas, to Des Moines, Iowa, beginning with the 2013-14 season.

• The transfer of ownership of the Peoria Rivermen franchise from the St. Louis Blues to the Aquilini Investment Group, owners of the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks. No determination has been made relative to the operation of the franchise for the 2013-14 season.
