The Allen Americans, in conjunction with the ECHL, have released their regular-season home schedule for the 2020-21 campaign.
“Everyone with the Americans, from our fans to our players, coaches and front office are excited to get back on the ice and playing games again,” says new Americans Team President Mike Waddell. “To have the chance to open the season in front of the best fans in the ECHL is a great way to get back to our hockey normal and pursue what will be our third Kelly Cup in seven years.”
The Americans open their twelfth season (seventh in the ECHL) at home with a six-game homestand at Allen Event Center, launched with back to back games against the long-time rival, the Rapid City Rush on Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17. Both games will be 7:05 p.m. face-offs.
The Allen Americans return to the home ice for a rare Wednesday night tilt, four nights later, on October 21 against heated rival, the Wichita Thunder. The opening homestand comes to a close October 30, 31 and November 1 with a three-game set against the Idaho Steelheads. The Friday and Saturday night games are both 7:05 p.m. starts, while the Sunday game is listed as TBD.
In total, the Americans will play 36 regular-season games at home, with 21 being played on the home ice of Allen Event Center before the first of the year, including the fan-favorite New Year’s Eve game, which will be a 6:05 p.m. start on Thursday, December 31 against the Rapid City Rush.
