Vancouver, BC – The Vancouver Canucks, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, released their 2017.18 regular season schedule today. The club will begin the season at home against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday, October 7th. This marks the 3rd time in Canucks history the team has started the regular season versus the Oilers and first since the 1992.93 season. This will also mark the fifth time the team has hosted the Oilers in their home opener and the third time in the last five seasons.

Noteworthy home games of the 2017.18 season include a rare four-game home stand versus four different Canadian clubs between October 7th and 14th (Edmonton, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Calgary). The defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins visit during a five-game home stand on November 4th while the NHL’s newest team, the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, play their first regular season game at Rogers Arena later in the month on November 16th. December is highlighted by visits from Toronto on the 2nd and Montreal on the 19th.

The busiest day for the Canucks this season will be Tuesday with 18 games followed by Thursday with 16 and Saturday with 16. Saturday is the busiest day at home with 11 games while Sunday features a high of nine road games. The Canucks busiest month is November and March with 15 games each. The busiest home month is December with 10 games while the busiest road month is November with the Canucks playing 10 games away from Vancouver.

The Canucks will have ten back-to-back games this season, with eight series taking place on the road. This is the fewest number of back-to-back series the Canucks have had since playing in seven during the 2012.13 season. The longest home stand of the season is five games and occurs on four separate occasions (Oct. 26 – Nov. 6; Jan. 23 – Feb. 3; Feb. 28 – Mar. 9; Mar. 27 – Apr. 5). The longest road trip is seven games which takes place from January 6th to January 21st.
