The NHL released the full schedule for the 2017-2018 regular season Thursday afternoon.
It's been a busy week in hockey, as the league unveiled the slate of opening night games Wednesday, just a few hours before the expansion draft. The 2017 NHL draft will begin Friday and wrap up on Saturday.
On opening night, the Tampa Bay Lightning will take on the Florida Panthers at Amalie Arena on October 6. The Bolts will then immediately head to Sunrise to play the Panthers in the back half of a home and home series.
