The All-American Hockey League was a minor league hockey organization formed in 1972 with teams based in the Upper Midwest and Great lakes regions of the United States as the Continental Hockey League. In 1986 the league folded, and Danville, Dayton, and Troy went on to form the All-American Hockey League. In 1987, the All-American Hockey League merged with the Atlantic Coast Hockey League. After a single season in the AAHL, Carolina, Johnstown, and Virginia left the league to form the East Coast Hockey League.[1] The AAHL only lasted one more season and folded after the 1988-1989 season.[2]

The All-American Hockey League (1972–1988) is not to be confused with the All American Hockey League that operated from 2008 to 2011 as a lower level professional ice hockey league with teams in the Midwestern United States.
