The Rapid City Rush announced in conjunction with the ECHL the next wave of schedule games for the 2020-21 ECHL Season, containing an additional 12 contests from January 15th to February 11th.
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 January 6th, 8th, and 9th, 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-in-three” on Friday, January 15th, Saturday, January 16th, and Sunday, January 17th. Following the trio of matchups against Tulsa, the Grizzlies return for another pair of games on Friday, January 22nd, and Saturday, January 23rd. Dating back to the Allen series at the start of the month, this extends the Rush’s homestand to 8 games.
Following the 8-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-in-three” on Friday, January 29th, Saturday, January 30th, and Sunday, January 31st. Two days later on Tuesday, February 2nd, the Rush will visit the Kansas City Mavericks for a lone showdown, their first meeting of the campaign.
