The Manitoba Moose saw their 2017-18 American Hockey League season come to an end much earlier than most had hoped. On Friday night at the BMO Harris Bank Center, the IceHogs took it to the Moose one final time - improving their AHL best 7-0 playoff record in the process.

The American Hockey League has announced that it will be re-aligning its divisions for the upcoming 2018-19 hockey season.
