The 1936-37 AHL season was the 1st season of the International-American Hockey League, known in the present day as the American Hockey League. The IAHL was formed following a merger between the International Hockey League and the Canadian-American Hockey League.
The league consisted of eight teams in two divisions, scheduled to play a 48 game season. The four teams in the West Division came from the International Hockey League, and the four teams in the East Division came from the Canadian-American Hockey League. The Buffalo Bisons were forced to suspend operations on December 6, 1936, due to financial woes.
The F. G. "Teddy" Oke Trophy was carried over by the West Division from the International Hockey League, and was awarded to the Syracuse Stars as West Division champions. The Syracuse Stars also won the inaugural Calder Cup by defeating the Philadelphia Ramblers for the championship.
