Rivermen open 2019-20 season at home on Oct. 19 vs Quad City

By Dave Eminian - Journal Star 


PEORIA — The Peoria Rivermen will play the rival Quad City Storm on Opening Night in Carver Arena to start the 2019-20 Southern Professional Hockey League season.

The Rivermen will play a 12-game season series against Quad City, whose head coach is former Peoria captain Dave Pszenyczny.

Peoria will play a 10-game series against Evansville.

That’s 22 games against the league’s two bottom teams from 2018-19, fewer than the Rivermen played against them on the way to the SPHL regular-season points title and a record 40-win season.

Peoria opens at home with Quad City on Oct. 19 -- a Saturday -- and then follows a week later with another Saturday contest at home against Evansville.

“We know who we play and we know when we play, now it’s time to fill in the spaces with a promotions and entertainment lineup that our fans will love,” Rivermen co-owner Bart Rogers said. “We look forward to renewing our rivalry with Quad City and bringing our fans a team they can be proud of on and off the ice.

“It all starts in 109 days, and we’re excited about what is ahead for us.”

Some of the schedule breakdown:

• The Rivermen have 11 Saturday home games among their 28 home contests -- fewer than what has been traditional for them.
