The Idaho Steelheads open the 2018-19 home schedule at CenturyLink Arena this Friday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7:10 p.m. against the rival Utah Grizzlies.

The Steelheads and Grizzlies meet for the first time in their 15-game season series, opening the next chapter of their storied rivalry. Last season, the Steelheads took their head-to-head series with a 8-4-3 record including a 3-2-1 record at CenturyLink Arena. This is the first of four-straight games against the Grizzlies, and the Steelheads own a 92-42-24 regular season record in the ECHL franchise series.

Idaho opened the season last week on the road with three games, one in Wichita and two in Tulsa. The Steelheads logged their first win of the season Sunday in Tulsa.
