LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The minor-league arm of the National Hockey League announced it would cancel the remainder of its 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The American Hockey League made the announcement Monday morning after the AHL Board of Governors voted on the decision.

"After a lengthy review process, the American Hockey League has determined that the resumption and completion of the 2019-20 season is not feasible in light of current conditions," the league said in a statement.

The NHL has yet to announce plans for the remainder of its season, which would've been well into the Stanley Cup playoffs had they not suspended the season in March.
