I really wish this was a joke. But unfortunately, it is not. The name of the AHL team in Des Moines Iowa is now called the “Iowa Chops”.
I knew that we were screwed when I heard that the new NHL affiliate was going to be the Anaheim Ducks. Its an NHL team based off a Disney movie. We should have expected the same corny half ass marketing for the AHL club.
Way to go guys, you’ve officially made is the laughing stock of the AHL.
