NHL announces 2012/13 Vancouver Canucks complete season schedule

2012-2013 Canucks Opponents

The 2012 NHL offseason is underway. We just had the (yawn) NHL awards. Did you hear a Sedin finished 9th in the running for a trophy? Ya. me too!

Friday night the 2012 NHL draft gets underway, we’ll be your source for all Vancouver Canucks analysis on Friday night during the first round.

So check back often.

Onto present matters.

The 2012/13 National Hockey League schedule came out today. (The Canucks preseason schedule is also out.) So we now know (all lockout jokes aside) who the Canucks will face, and on what dates in the 2012/13 season.

Here is the official Canucks press release.

Facts

Some interesting factoids that stand out to me just looking at the schedule quickly.

Sedin knows when they get Chicago now. Canucks play 6 of their 1st 8 games & 14 of first 23 on road. – (Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE)

The Canucks open their schedule (Possibly) against the Flames on the road Thursday October 11th. The Canucks‬ home opener is SAT OCT 13, 2012 vs. the Edmonton‬ ‪Oilers‬ a 7pm start at Rogers Arena.

The Canucks play 6 of their first 8 games and 14 of their first 23 games on the road.

Matchups

Some interesting dates I’m sure your all wondering about. The Blackhawks come to town November 15th, and February 2nd, the Red Wings grace Vancouver October 30th, and March 16th.

The Montreal Canadiens swing in on November 3rd, and the Ottawa Senators fly in on December 8th. No home dates versus the Jets this year.

The Bruins come to town December 29th. The Lightning come to town October 28th, the Canucks get a shot at the Champs, the LA Kings on February 17th.

Could we see Roberto Luongo in his new Leafs jersey on December 15th? Possibly.

Canucks GM Mike Gillis has already gone on record and proclaimed that the “2012-13 NHL schedule is the best yet in his time as GM as far as Canucks travel concerns go.”

You have to like hearing that from him right Vancouver?

Hockey Night In Canada

How many times do we get to hear Don Cherry rant about the Canucks and Sweden in 2012/13? The answer is 15 times. Matchups on Saturday night include games against other Canadian teams, or big matchups like the Red Wings, the Bruins and the Blackhawks. (On dates we’ve listed above)

Per Canucks.com Press Release

The 2012.13 Canucks schedule features 11 back-to-back series including three home and road series. The longest home stand is five games from December 2nd – 8th; two five-game road trips mark the longest time Vancouver will be away from Rogers Arena with the first from October 18th – 25th and the second November 22nd – 29th.

Below is the complete 2012/13 Canucks Schedule. (Remember it could change)
