AHL won't cancel/postpone games. Players will be recalled from ECHL teams. Some teams may run a short bench for a week or two. If they really have to AHL GM's will sign unsigned/lower league players to PTO's to fill the roster.

Couple years ago Norfolk GM signed a few IHL players to PTO's to fill roster spots during injury call ups. When players returned from the NHL, the rental players were released from their contracts.
