Season Opens on October 1st with $1 Beer Night; First Game in 537 Days

Chicago, IL – The Madison Capitols, in conjunction with the United States Hockey League, officially released their schedule for the 2021-2022 hockey season. The season begins against the reigning Clark Cup Champions, Chicago Steel, on Friday, October 1, 2021 for the first $1 beer night of the season as the Capitols will play hockey for the first time in 537 days.


The team has stormed back into the public eye with new fan experiences, promotions, and the introduction of the MC84 Season Membership. This will also be the first chance for the new leadership of Head Coach & General Manager, Tom Upton, and Associate Head Coach, Corey Leivermann to get behind the bench for the Capitols after being hired in the summer of 2020.


For the second straight season, the USHL has decided to stick with a regional schedule, meaning the Capitols will play within the Eastern Conference for all but one game this season. All home games this season take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:05pm, with a lone Thursday game taking place on December 16th vs. Dubuque. The season concludes with a home-and-home series against the Gamblers on April 22nd and 23rd.


This season, Madison will face off with in-state rivals, the Green Bay Gamblers, a season high 11 times. Other opponents include 10 games against the Chicago Steel, 9 against the Youngstown Phantoms, 8 games vs. each Michigan team (USNTDP and Muskegon Lumberjacks), 7 against close rivals, the Dubuque Fighting Saints, 6 vs. the Cedar Rapids Roughriders, and 1 taking on the Waterloo Black Hawks.
