Schedule for 2024 Calder Cup Finals Announced

June 12, 2024

The Hershey Bears and the American Hockey League have announced the schedule for the Calder Cup Finals versus the Coachella Valley Firebirds. Hershey, the No. 1-seeded club in the Eastern Conference and the defending Calder Cup Champions, will square off with Coachella Valley, the No. 1-seeded team in the Western Conference, in a best-of-seven series and a rematch of the 2023 Calder Cup Finals.

This marks the 25th time in franchise history that the Bears will play for the Calder Cup. Hershey won its league-record 12th championship last June, defeating Coachella Valley in overtime in Game 7 at Acrisure Arena. Last year's series versus Coachella Valley saw the Bears fall down 2-0 in the series before returning to GIANT Center and winning three straight home games to take a 3-2 series lead. After the Firebirds won Game 6 to force a decisive finish, Hershey claimed Game 7 by winning its third overtime game of the series on a Mike Vecchione goal.

This marks the fourth time in league history that two AHL clubs have competed for the Calder Cup in back-to-back years, and the first since the Springfield Indians and Rochester Americans squared off both in 1990 and 1991, with Springfield winning the championship in both years.

This year's rendition of the Bears are looking to become the first AHL team to repeat as Calder Cup Champions since Hershey won the league crown in 2009 and 2010.
