After giving us a taste of the 2018-19 season with a list of home openers yesterday, the NHL has released the full schedule for next season. The year begins on October 3rd with four games including a matchup between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs and one between the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins, where we will see the first Stanley Cup banner in franchise history raised to the rafters of Capital One Arena.
On October 6th, the Edmonton Oilers and New Jersey Devils will face off in Sweden as part of the league’s Global Series. Connor McDavid will take on reigning Hart Trophy winner and former teammate Taylor Hall, while Adam Larsson, Jesper Bratt and others will show off for their home country. The first rematch of the Stanley Cup Final will be held in Washington on October 10th, while Vegas will welcome the Capitals to Sin City on December 4th.
The final day of the season—unless we see a postponement like we did this year—will be April 6th, which will see 15 games and 30 of 31 teams take the ice.
Details on each team’s schedule are linked below:
