The Chicago Steel will face the Muskegon Lumberjacks to open the 2020-21 regular season on Saturday, November 14 at 7:35 pm. The USHL announced some changes in the schedule on Monday. The Lumberjacks will travel to Fox Valley Ice Arena this weekend to face off the Steel.
The USHL declared this weekend’s games between the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (NTDP) and the Chicago Steel a “No Contest”. The USHL made this decision due to the failure in fulfilling the minimum standards under the league safety protocols. The USHL said that it would work with the NTDP, the Steel, and the Lumberjacks to reschedule those games.
The changes in the schedule allowed the Lumberjacks and the Steel to play a game on November 14. However, this game was scheduled to be played on March 7, 2021, between these two teams. The home games of the Steel will be played without spectators under the guidelines issued by the State of Illinois.
