The American Hockey League has announced the remainder of the 2020-21 season schedule for Manitoba and its fellow Canadian Division teams. On Tuesday afternoon, the league produced the full 36-game schedule, after having only released the month of February for the teams located north of the 49th parallel.
After opening the season with four home games against the Toronto Marlies – to which the team went 2-2-0 – the Moose have since travelled to Laval for another four-game set with the Rocket. Manitoba opened the series with a 3-2 overtime win on Monday.
However, after the four games in Quebec, the Moose were unsure of their whereabouts. But on Tuesday, that all became much clearer.

Hopefully the players and coaching staff brought a few extra pairs of clothes along to Laval, as the team will next face off against Toronto for two games before taking on the Belleville Senators for another two games in Ontario to begin the month of March.
But following that eight-game road trip, the team returns home to Winnipeg for a franchise-record 17-game homestand, beginning March 8 and running through April 29. The Moose will then close out the strangely shaped season with seven games on the road in Ontario.
In all, Manitoba will host a division-high 21 home games, while playing just 15 road contests (a division-low). The Moose will see Belleville 10 times, both Toronto and Stockton nine ties and Laval eight times this season. The team also officially announced that it will be hosting its remaining home games out of Bell MTS Iceplex.
