USHL League Update – Fall 2020
by Todd Klein
Head Athletic Trainer
Waterloo Black Hawks
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.
