Maybe AHL preseason games aren't financially feasible, or logically necessary, what with final NHL cuts and AHL assignments happening right before the start of the season. Maybe the thought process is that things will come together in the first week or two of the season.
The Barons actually host two preseason games this season against Houston, Oct. 5th & 6th. They hosted one with Houston last year, and none the first season.
