The San Diego Gulls and FOX 5 San Diego announced today the American Hockey League (AHL) club's local television schedule for the 2020-21 AHL season. Eight games will air live throughout the San Diego region on FOX 5 San Diego, the local FOX affiliate TV station proudly serving San Diego television viewers.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the San Diego Gulls and to be able to bring the excitement of professional hockey back to viewers and users across the San Diego area,” said FOX 5 Vice President/General Manager Scott Heath.
The eight-game television schedule will feature six home contests at FivePoint Arena in Irvine, Calif. in addition to two road games.

Andy Zilch enters his third season as the Gulls’ play-by-play announcer. Zilch will once again be joined in the broadcast booth by color analyst B.J. MacPherson, who will call his sixth season of Gulls hockey. MacPherson played 774 games of professional hockey in the AHL, West Coast Hockey League (WCHL) and International Hockey League (IHL) from 1994-2001. He was a member of the WCHL Gulls from 1996-2001 where he scored 137-208=345 points and won four Taylor Cup championships with San Diego. Troy Hirsch, FOX 5 News Sports Director, returns to serve as host for a fourth consecutive season on each broadcast during the game and with the FOX 5 Sports Final prior to and immediately following each telecast.
In addition to the televised games, Zilch will host the second season of “Gulls All-Access”.
