About American Hockey League

The American Hockey League is hockey's equivalent to baseball's minor leagues, serving as a developmental circuit for the National Hockey League.  The company manages special projects, media relations and marketing for all 29 teams in its four divisions (United States and Canada).  These teams include the Manitoba Moose, the Manchester Monarchs, the Albany River Rats, the Chicago Wolves and the Portland Pirates.

AHL internships are intended to prepare recruits for careers in sports marketing and advertising.  Interns mostly work in the marketing department, but can also assist with hockey operations, media relations and communications, broadcast production and business development.  Depending on the time of year, interns may also work on other projects.  Internships are available at AHL headquarters or at one of its team locations.


Open to college juniors and seniors, as well as recent grads and grad students.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible.  Qualifications vary depending on the position, so check the website for more information.
