The Farm Report is back after a week off, but still a little worn out. Worn out is something the Hershey Bears aren't because they're on a huge run to start 2015 and it's all thanks to Troy Mann. Toledo has welcomed back hockey with open arms and the team is doing what they can to return the favor to the community. Parker Milner is trying to find a community to settle down, while Tom Kuhnhackl has settled down into a new role in the Penguins organization. All that, plus News and Notes and We Hardly Knew Ye.

On this edition of the Farm Report, Scotty talks about the purchase of the Missouri Mavericks by powerful local businessman who is determined to expand the brand of the team. Justin Cseter returned to the scene of his horrific injury and talks about how, to him, it's not that big a deal anymore. The Canadian AHL teams are feeling a big pinch due to the declining dollar, while the ECHL reformatted their divisions for the 2015-16 season. Monthly awards, weekly awards, Arizona minor league craziness, and We Hardly Knew Ye.
As expected, this week's episode is all about what has happened during the AHL and ECHL Board of Governors meetings and the press conferences to announce all the changes. Scotty will talk about the changes and the fallout of the cities that are effected both positively and negatively. The AHL also had an All-Star Classic in Utica, which couldn't have gone off better; while the Pensacola Ice Flyers wish their arena had a better schedule to allow them to practice. All that, plus some other news and notes and We Hardly Knew Ye.
