The schedule for the upcoming CIHL season was released on August 6, and the Prince Rupert Rampage can look forward to plenty of play against their northwest counterparts.
The team will begin the season on the road, opening against the Ice Demons at Tamitik on October 1. The following Saturday the team will face-off against the Omenica Ice on Saturday and will meet the Houston Luckies in a Sunday afternoon game.
Those three road games will be followed by a lengthy home-stint that will run from October 15 through to November 5. On the 15th the team will play the Terrace River Kings, on the 29th the Rampage will again face-off with the Kitimat Ice Demons, on October 29 they will play the Houston Luckies and the next afternoon the Smithers Steelheads will be in town for a Sunday afternoon game. Rupert fans will get their first look at the expansion Quesnel Kangaroos when they come to town for a November 5 game at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre arena.
On November 12 the team will travel to Terrace, followed by another weekend double-header that will see the Rampage battle the Steelheads on November 19 and the Hazelton Wolverines on the afternoon of November 20.
Another home double header is scheduled for November 26 and 27 against the River Kings and the Wolverines respectively.
The team will spend much of December on the road, playing the River Kings on December 3 and the Ice Demons on December 10 and 17.
The final two games of the season will be at home with the River Kings coming to town for a rare Friday night game on December 30 and the Ice Demons wrapping up the schedule on January 14.
