The United States Hockey League announced their 2020-21 schedule today. The schedule, which is slated to start on November 6th, will feature 54 games for the 14 member clubs participating. Dubuque will kick off their season November 6th at home on Opening Night Presented by MidWestOne Bank. Dubuque’s opening opponent will be the Muskegon Lumberjacks.
The 2020-21 Fighting Saints season is presented by MidWestOne Bank and will look different than in years past. Not only will there be just 54 regular season games, but Cedar Rapids and Madison will not participate, meaning two local rivals won’t make appearances on the Saints schedule.
Dubuque will host six of eight games during the month of November and 10 of their first 15 games will be at home. Dubuque’s longest stretch without a home game will stretch from the middle of December to the end of that same month; a three-week stretch without a game at the Mystique Community Ice Center.
Without CR and Madison in the picture, Dubuque will face uncommon opponents a lot more. The Saints schedule features 10 games against Muskegon, eight against Youngstown and eight against the NTDP. The Saints will still face in-state rival Waterloo six times, two fewer than last season.
The season is expected to end on April 24th as Dubuque hosts the Green Bay Gamblers on Friday and Saturday of that weekend. The 24th will be Fan Appreciation Night presented by MidWestOne Bank.
