The Flames will be part of 3 home openers including their own which will be vs. the Edmonton Oilers at the Saddledome on Friday, October 14th. That will be the 2nd time the teams meet in the upcoming season as the Flames will also be the first team to face the Oilers in their new arena 2 days prior on October 12th. (The Flames also play there on September 21st in a preseason Game – click here to see the full preseason sched).

The full NHL Schedule will be announced tomorrow at 11am so stay tuned! I always like to see when the New York Islanders are in town as the Flames and Ilses are my favorite teams.
Also, this week the NHL Draft will take place in Buffalo this Friday and Saturday. Flames pick 6th overall. the Maple Leafs won the lottery and will be 1st followed by the Winnipeg Jets. NHL
