Waterloo hopes to continue the momentum they built up in the fall of 2019 right into 2020! The Black Hawks are 21-5-1 with 43 points and a HUGE 12 point lead over 2nd place Fargo in the USHL Western Conference.

After beating the Des Moines Buccaneers twice this past weekend, the Black Hawks survived a big rally by the Madison Capitols to claim a 7-3 New Year’s Eve win at Young Arena on Tuesday night. Plus, Joe Cassetti had a hat trick! In just his third game, Cassetti continued his exceptional return to Waterloo, recording the lone goal of the first period. It was his fourth goal in seven periods since returning to the team.
