The 2014–15 AHL season is the 79th season of the American Hockey League. The regular season began in October 2014, and will end in April 2015. The 2015 Calder Cup playoffs follow the conclusion of the regular season.
Team and NHL affiliation changes
- The Adirondack Phantoms will be relocating to Allentown, Pennsylvania to begin play as the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
- The Abbotsford Heat will be relocating to Glens Falls, New York, after the City of Abbotsford terminated their lease agreement with the Calgary Flames. The team will be known as the Adirondack Flames and will play out of the Glens Falls Civic Center.
On July 9th the President of the AHL announced a realignment for the 2014–15 season. Eastern Conference changes include the Lehigh Valley Phantoms relocation and swapping to the East Division from the Northeast Division with the Syracuse Crunch. Western Conference changes include the Lake Erie Monsters moving from the North Division to the Midwest Division, and the Iowa Wild moving from the Midwest to the West Division due to the Adirondack Flames relocation in to the North Division 
- Overtime will be extended to seven minutes. Following the first whistle beyond the first three minutes, both teams are reduced further from four to three men on the ice.
- Shootouts will switch to the NHL format of three skaters a side.
- If a goaltender deliberately knocks the goal out of place during a breakaway, the goaltender shall be ejected from the game, and the backup goaltender will be required to face a penalty shot against any player of the opposing team's choosing. This rule was imposed midseason after Bridgeport Sound Tigers goaltender David Leggio knocked his goal out of place during a 2-on-0 breakaway, determining (correctly) that the penalty shot he would face under then-current rules would have been easier to defend than the 2-on-0 breakaway he was facing.
