The ECHL released the full 2017-18 regular season schedule on Tuesday, May 16, 2017. The Worcester Railers schedule was also included in this. For their inaugural season in the ECHL, they will play in 36 home and 36 away games.

Placed in the North Division and in the Eastern Conference, the Railers will face most of their games against the Adirondack Thunder, Brampton Beast, Reading Royals, Wheeling Nailers, and a familiar rival, the Manchester Monarchs. They will face 13 of the 27 ECHL teams this season.

In a video last week, the Railers announced they would be facing the Toledo Walleye, Adirondack Thunder, Quad City Mallards, Brampton Beast, Utah Grizzlies, Manchester Monarchs, Wheeling Nailers, Reading Royals, Jacksonville IceMen, Florida Everblades, and the Fort Wayne Komets at the DCU Center in the 2017-18 season.

The Railers’ furthest trip west will be to Utah for games on October 27 and 28.

The Worcester Railers will face many familiar faces and visit states that past Worcester Hockey teams haven’t faced in many years, such as the Utah Grizzlies who played in the AHL and faced our IceCats.

The Railers will play their first-ever game at the DCU Center on October 14, 2017 against the Manchester Monarchs.

Here is the complete 2017-18 schedule for the Worcester Railers:
