GENEVA, ILLINOIS — The Chicago Steel announced today the club’s preseason schedule with three of the four games to be played at Fox Valley Ice Arena.

The Steel take to the road for a game against the Muskegon Lumberjacks at Mercy Health Arena in Michigan on Friday, Sept. 9 at 6:10 pm CT before taking the ice at Fox Valley Ice Arena on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7:05 pm CT, the first chance for Steel fans to see the club in action on home ice entering the 2022-2023 slate.

A season ago, the Steel owned a 6-0-3-0 record in nine head-to-head matchups against Muskegon with seven of those contests decided by two or fewer goals.

Chicago concludes the preseason by hosting a pair of matchups against the Youngstown Phantoms on Friday, Sept. 16 and Saturday, Sept. 17 at 7:05 pm CT at Fox Valley Ice Arena.

The Steel and Phantoms split an eight-game regular season series in 2021-2022 with Chicago totaling a 4-4-0-0 mark versus the Eastern Conference foes.

After the Steel wrap up the four-game exhibition schedule, the club will travel to Cranberry Township, Penn., for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods USHL Fall Classic at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.
