Yesterday the Coyotes announced who they would be playing at their home opener, that honor goes to the Philadelphia Flyers on October 15th. The Full Schedule can be found here.

This is the first year that the NHL is implementing bye weeks. The Coyotes will have theirs January 8th-12th, with the All-Star break January 27th-30th. They also have 11 back to back games this season, including 3 in the month of January.

The NHL again was kind in giving the Coyotes 14 home games on Saturdays; and only 10 home games on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday night. Also of note, the Saturday home games have reverted back to a 6pm start and 7pm weekday starts with a few exceptions. The two Sunday games will be a 6:30 start, the game against the Canucks on November 23rd will be an 8pm start, the game against the Oilers on December 21st will be a 7:30pm start and Against the Blues on March 29th will be a 7:30pm start.
