Mavs Insiders: A Deeper Look

By: Joe Rozycki

The countdown to the 2018-19 Kansas City Mavericks season is officially under way. Yes I know, there are still a few ECHL games to be played this season to see if anyone can dethrone the Colorado Eagles in their swan song season before their jump to the AHL, but for us Mavericks fans, we’re already counting down the days until Friday, October 12th. For only the second time in team history, the Mavericks will open their season at home, in front of all you Orange Army maniacs, as they welcome the Allen Americans on opening night.

The ECHL released the full slate of games for the 2018-19 season on Tuesday, so the Mavs Insiders decided to delve a little deeper into those matchups for the upcoming campaign. The Mavericks are back in the Mountain Division, and that is likely to be a dogfight from start to finish. 52 of the 72 games on the docket are within the division. Good news – take care of business and the Mavs will have every opportunity to stake their claim in the division, bad news – it is an incredibly tough division from top to bottom which means the Mavericks will have their work cut out for them. Here are a few other highlights:

So there you have it, a deeper dive into the Mavs schedule for next season. The opponents are formidable, the travel is rough at times, and the challenge is daunting. However, the 10th season of Mavericks hockey is going to be one to remember. Mark my words. That journey begins on Friday, October 12th.
