Maybe that's by design and not a media decision, though. The NHL may not want competition for viewers so they tie the hands of the AHL teams where media is concerned. I'm sure it's no different for minor league baseball vs major league. We don't see the Sounds on TV here. The only place I can ever remember seeing AHL play live (on TV) is on NHL Network last season. I'm guessing it was an NHL decision to broadcast it, not the network's.
