Gothenburg and Helsinki to host NHL games

Gothenburg and Helsinki to host NHL games

22 Jul 2018 | Fredrik Pålsson

Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid will make his NHL 2018-19 debut in Europe.


Meanwhile, fans in the U.S. will be able to enjoy two outdoor games in the schedule that was released on June 21.

The New Jersey Devils will open the season against the Oilers in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Winnipeg Jets take on the Florida Panthers on November 1-2 in two meetings in Helsinki. The Chicago Blackhawks will play the Boston Bruins at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana on New Year’s Day in the NHL Winter Classic. The season’s second outdoor game will see the Pittsburgh Penguins visit rivals Philadelphia Flyers on February 23. It will take place at the Philadelphia Eagles Lincoln Financial Stadium.

Vegas gets early rematch

Stanley Cup holders the Washington Capitals will welcome Boston on the season’s opening night on October 3. The team who lost in the final of the Cup, the Vegas Golden Knights, will then face a rematch against the Capitals in Washington on October 10.

Capitals fans will be particularly interested in the team’s November 26 game against the New York Islanders. It will be Washington’s first meeting against their one-time coach Barry Trotz. The coach recently left the capital state after he and his former team failed to agree terms on a new contract. Three days after his exit, Trotz joined the Islanders. The New York team will visit the Capitals on January 18. They will face off again on the final day of the season on April 6.

More opening night matchups

The opening night will also feature Anaheim vs San Jose, Calgary vs Vancouver, and Montreal vs Toronto. Each team will play through an 82-game schedule, with all but one of the 31 teams playing on the final day.

The Florida Panthers and Anaheim Ducks will be celebrating 25 years in the NHL. Tampa Bay will play host to the Panthers on October 6, 25 years to the day after they tied their first NHL game 4-4 against the Chicago. Anaheim will host Detroit on October 8, 25 years after their NHL debut against the very same team. The Mighty Ducks lost that game 7-2.

More NHL for Euro fans

European fans have something to get excited about with two NHL games crossing the Atlantic. Those who like watching the NHL on television will also be able to enjoy the rest of the exciting schedule. When you add Fantasy Hockey to the mix, they have something even more to look forward to. Betting in hockey is also becoming an increasingly popular pastime. There are more and more ways to bet on the game, including in-play betting. Live betting on sites such as Mr Green has become increasingly popular. The majority of live bets are placed on the match winner, due to the game’s back-and-forth style.

The season will take a break between January 24 and January 27 for the NHL All-Star game. The annual event will take place in San Jose on January 26. Each of the four divisions will be represented in three 20-minute 3-on-3 tournament-style games.

Canada will celebrate Hockey Day on February 9, with games featuring each of the seven NHL Canadian teams. American’s Hockey Day takes place on February 17, with six games scheduled to celebrate the occasion.
