WINNIPEG – If you share season tickets, get your calendar out and start marking down dates. The Winnipeg Jets have released their full regular season schedule for next season.
It begins with a home game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, October 13th. The Toronto Maple Leafs pay their lone visit on Wednesday, October 19th ahead of the Heritage Classic outdoor game against the Edmonton Oilers on October 23rd.
There is a home game on New Year’s Eve. The New York Islanders come to town that Saturday night for a 6 p.m. faceoff.
The longest homestand of the season is six games from February 28-March 11. The longest road trip is five games. It begins November 17 and stretches until November 25.
The Jets will play 14 back-to-backs this season, with just three of those sets at home.
A new feature on the schedule this year is a five day “player break” in February. Every team will have February 22-26 off.
