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.
