Sabres 2016-17 home opener to be Thursday, October 13 vs. Montreal Canadiens

We don’t have the full NHL schedule yet, but we do know when the home opener will be.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Buffalo Sabres Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The NHL schedule is set to come out this week, but all 30 teams got to open one of their presents a day early as the league announced the home openers for next season.

The Buffalo Sabres are set to play their first home game next year on Thursday, October 13, and their opponent will be the Montreal Canadiens. Based on the full list of home openers, this game will also be the team’s season opener.

On another mildly interesting note, the Sabres tweeted out a graphic with the home opener that featured the hashtag #HereWeGoNow. It’s a clear reference to their goal song, and potentially next season’s slogan, which is a pretty *thumbs up emoji* tie-in.

We should know the rest of the schedule soon, but until then, give us your hopes and dreams for next year’s home opener in the comments.
