The Vancouver Canucks will begin life after the Sedins on October 3, when they play the Calgary Flames in the first game of the 2018-19 regular season.

That’s the beginning of an 82-game schedule that was released by the NHL on Thursday. After their home opener, the Canucks will hit the road for six games, before returning to Rogers Arena to play the Boston Bruins October 20.

Players will get to enjoy New Year’s Eve in New York City this year, as they play against the New Jersey Devils on December 31. They end the season on April 6 on the road against the St Louis Blues.
