The North American Hockey League (NAHL) in conjunction with its 22 member teams has released the game schedule for the upcoming 2015-16 season. Each team will play a 60 game schedule with 28 home and 28 on the road, with the remaining 4 played in the annual NAHL Showcase Tournament in Blaine, MN. The NAHL will announce the Showcase schedule at a later date. The Topeka RoadRunners, entering their ninth season in northeast Kansas, will begin the season at home with a pair of games against the Wichita Falls Wildcats on Friday and Saturday, September 11 and 12.
Of the 28 dates slated for the RoadRunners in Landon Arena, 22 of them will be played on Friday and Saturday nights. 4 fall on Sundays, and one two game set against Amarillo in December will be played on a Wednesday and Thursday. The games are spread fairly evenly in the first four months, with 4 home games in each of the final four calendar months of 2015. The month of February will have no home games, a side effect of playing in a multi-use arena. January will feature 7 home games, with 3 in March and 2 in April. In past years, the league has attempted to conclude regular season play by the end of March but for this season, the season concludes on April 9, allowing two extra weekends for scheduling.
Some dates of interest include Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2 and 3 when the RoadRunners face the defending South Division champion Lone Star Brahmas. New Years Day features the RoadRunners squaring off with Corpus Christi, and April Fools Day will see the Amarillo Bulls in town. All home games start at 7:05 pm, with the exception of Sunday games which face off at 6:05 pm.
