Today the NHL released the complete 2016-17 schedule for each team. Here are some keys dates to keep in mind this season:

Oct 23, 2016 The Ducks home opener will be against the Vancouver Canucks.

Nov 25, 2016 The Ducks will again host the Chicago Blackhawks on the day after Thanksgiving.

Jan 1, 2017 The Ducks will host their first New Year’s Day game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Jan 8, 2017 Bruce Boudreau will return to Honda Center as the Wild’s head coach.

Mar 3, 2017 Frederik Andersen will return to Honda Center as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Apr 9, 2017 The Ducks will finish the season at home against the Los Angeles Kings(Fan Appreciation Night).

Analysis

The Ducks will open the season with a five-game east coast road trip. They will then have two six-game road trips, one at the end of December and the other at the beginning of February. This means the Ducks will play 15 of their final 24 games at home. They will also play 21 of those 24 games in the Pacific Time Zone. This will be beneficial for Anaheim as they won’t have to travel as much during the stretch run of the season. Five of the final seven games are also against Pacific Division opponents, which could be crucial depending on the division race at that time.

The NHL built in a five-day bye week for each team into their schedule between Jan 1 and Feb 28 this season. Players will not practice during this break. There will be practice permitted after 4 p.m. local time on the fifth day if there is a game on the sixth day; otherwise no practice will be allowed on the fifth day. The Ducks appear to have the final bye week as they don’t play from February 26 through March 2. According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, this was an exception both the NHL and NHLPA agreed upon as it falls just outside the Jan 1 through Feb 28 time frame.

Ticket Giveaways

As we have done in the past, we will be giving away two pairs of tickets to the Ducks home opener on October 23, 2016 and the season home finale on April 9, 2017.
