With the NHL Awards and NHL Entry Draft just around the corner, it is time for season and home openers to be announced. The Winnipeg Jets revealed that they are opening their season in St.Louis against the Blues on October fourth. They are opening at home on October ninth against the Los Angeles Kings.
Now that we know this, I would like to clarify a few things: no it is not October yet. Yes, you can stop asking that. It is a very nice June day and summer is lovely.
The NHL will open it’s season on October third when the Boston Bruins travel to Washington for the Capitals Stanley Cup banner raising ceremony. The Caps play the Pittsburgh Penguins the next night because the NHL can not do anything right.
The Jets will have a week in between their last pre-season game and their season-opener. Let the games begin!
