The 2022-23 Vancouver Canucks are coming soon.
The Canucks have announced their pre-season schedule for the season, which will open on Sunday, September 25 in split-squad action against the Calgary Flames.
In all, Vancouver will play seven preseason games, including four at home. Their four home dates will feature three games at Rogers Arena and an additional tilt at Abbotsford Centre — home of the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Canucks.
Not to rush through summer or anything, but is it September yet?
