Iowa Wild and the American Hockey League announced today the complete 2019-20 schedule.
For the fifth consecutive season and sixth time in the last seven campaigns, the Wild will open the season at Wells Fargo Arena as Iowa hosts the Rockford IceHogs on Friday, Oct. 4 at 7:00 p.m. The game is the first of four home games for the Wild to start the season, followed by a season-long seven-game road trip with stops in Manitoba, Tucson, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee and Rockford. The longest homestand for the Wild is a nine-game stretch from Jan. 24 – Feb. 15.
The 2019-20 season consists of 76 games – 38 at Wells Fargo Arena and 38 road contests. Iowa’s home schedule features 28 weekend games (11 on Friday, 11 on Saturday and six on Sunday) and 10 weekday contests (one on Monday, five on Tuesday, three on Wednesday and one on Thursday). Three months (November, January and February) feature seven home games, the most in any month, while April only has two contests at Wells Fargo Arena, the fewest.
