The Rapid City Rush announced in conjunction with the ECHL the next wave of scheduled games for the 2020-21 ECHL Season, containing an additional 12 contests from Jan. 15 to Feb. 11.
Including the initial announcement of the 2020-21 schedule, these additions bring the current total of slated Rush games to 22 out of the full 72-game schedule.
After finishing a three-game series against the Allen Americans at home on Jan. 6, 8 and 9, the Rush will remain at home for five additional games against the Tulsa Oilers and Utah Grizzlies. The Rush will square off against the Oilers in a three-game series Jan. 15-17. Following the trio of matchups against Tulsa, the Grizzlies return for another pair of games Jan. 22-23. Dating back to the Allen series at the start of the month, this extends the Rush’s homestand to eight games.
Following the eight-game homestand, the Rush will embark on a six-game road trip over nine days. For the first time this season, the team will square off against the Wichita Thunder in the “Air Capital” in a three-game series Jan. 29-31. Two days later on Feb. 2, the Rush will visit the Kansas City Mavericks for a lone showdown, their first meeting of the campaign. After the game in Kansas City, the Rush will conclude their road trip with a pair of games against the Indy Fuel Feb. 5-6.
Rounding out this next wave of games, the Rush will return home for a solo showdown against the Tulsa Oilers, slated for Wednesday, Feb. 10.
