The Spokane Chiefs will begin the 2021-2022 regular season at home against the Tri-City Americans on Bud Light Opening Night, Saturday, October 2 at Spokane Arena.
With the anticipated lifting of health restrictions in Washington the 2021-22 season will call for a 68-game schedule while hosting fans in a safe environment in the Spokane Arena. The 2021-22 WHL Regular Season will conclude Sunday, April 3.
“We’ve missed our fans,” Chiefs President Mark Miles said. “It has been a long time since we’ve heard the goal song with a full house and we’re looking forward to the best fans in the WHL back in the building.”
Bud Light Opening Night will mark the first time the Chiefs can host fans in the Arena since March 10th, 2020 when they defeated the Kamloops Blazers 3-1, Spokane’s 10th win in a row at the time. The night was highlighted by a goal from Lukas Parik, the first ever by a goaltender in Spokane history. The Chiefs finished the shortened 2019-20 season 41-18-4-1.
