I don't think an AHL team will return. I think an ECHL team eventually will move into Peoria. Unfortunately it is too late for one to be here for next season. In the meantime, the best situation would be Vancouver operating their AHL team in Peoria for the next season or two while they try to relocate to Abbotsford. That would keep hockey in Peoria while a local group can be found to bring an ECHL team here.
