Welcome back to hockey from the USHL! Our teams and league office have been working hard during these times of uncertainty to get hockey going again. We were able to start training camps on September 14th with a slightly shortened regular season starting on November 6th.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us get started including the NHL who helped with intake testing. If all goes as planned, we will be playing a 54 game schedule (normally 62).

Unfortunately, we lost 2 teams for the upcoming season. The Cedar Rapids Roughriders had their building destroyed by the Deracho that went through the Midwest on August 10th. The Covid-19 restrictions in Dane county Wisconsin cost the Madison Capitols their season. We look forward to having them both back next season.

The Waterloo Black Hawks did their own Bubble training camp before their players moved in with their billets.

Thanks to the Hockey News for doing an article about our bubble.

Best of luck to everyone getting started. May they have a healthy season ahead.

What a crazy finish to the hockey season! Here in the USHL we have suspended operations for now hoping to return soon, but things don’t look too good. Hope to see everyone at the PHATS/SPHEM this summer.  Stay healthy!

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 hockey season.  We have been at it since late August here in the USHL with all of our high school kids.

Welcome to our new Athletic Trainers with the Dubuque Fighting Saints, Madison Capitols, Omaha Lancers, and the Sioux City Musketeers. Also, welcome our new Equipment managers with the Des Moines Buccaneers, Madison Capitols, Sioux City Musketeers, and the Tri-City Storm. Best of luck to our staff members that have moved on to the collegiate and professional ranks.  

Congratulations to all the players that were drafted in the NHL draft in June. The USHL had another record year in the draft, including the number 1 overall pick.  
Best of luck to everyone as we get started. Stay healthy and safe.
