Weekend Home Games: The Heartlanders play 31 of their 36 home games on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this season, the most in any season in team history.

Bloomington is starting its inaugural season and will play in Bloomington, Illinois, a three-hour drive from Coralville.

That includes eight home games vs. Bloomington, five vs. Fort Wayne, four against Toledo, Cincinnati and Kalamazoo and two against Indy. Of note, the Wheeling Nailers have moved to the North Division for this season and the Heartlanders only play Wheeling twice on the road. In total, Iowa faces 13 ECHL teams this season. The Central Division now consists of Iowa, Bloomington, Cincinnati, Fort Wayne, Indy, Kalamazoo and Toledo.
