The 2019-2020 season for the Bakersfield Condors has officially come to an end.

On Monday, the American Hockey League Board of Governors announced it had voted to end the 2019-2020 season, including the Calder Cup playoffs, officially bringing an end to the Condors' season.

AHL president and CEO David Andrews issued a statement saying:

"After a lengthy review process, the American Hockey League has determined that the resumption and completion of the 2019-20 season is not feasible in light of current conditions.

"The League's operational focus has turned toward actively preparing for the 2020-21 season.
We are very grateful to the National Hockey League and its teams for their support and leadership in navigating through the challenges faced over the past two months.

"The AHL continues to place paramount importance on the health and safety of our players, officials, staff and fans and all of their families, and we all look forward to returning to our arenas in 2020-21."
