After weeks of waiting, the USHL released the 2011-12 regular season schedule today. It seems like every year the schedule release date comes later and later, and like last season, it appears that the delay this year was due to a few teams who would not agree to the draft at hand. You can't please everyone, although it's understandable that teams want more home games on the weekend, and not during the week.

Also, there is news that a couple of teams have switched conferences. The Waterloo Blackhawks will play next season in the Western Conference of the USHL, while the Dubuque Fighting Saints will play in the Eastern Conference. Actually, this has been known for a few weeks now, as the Pointstreak USHL page shows Waterloo in the West, and Dubuque in the East.
The Lincoln Stars will open the 2011-12 regular season at home on September 30th against the Sioux Falls Stampede. Looking forward to that game at the IceBox already. Only two months away!
Here are some highlights of the Stars' season schedule:
Okay, I'd like to hear from you now. Your thoughts on the new schedule? Start planning those road trips! Hopefully soon the USHL will release the game schedule for the 2011 Fall Classic which will be held from September 21-24 in Sioux City, Iowa.
