The Golden Knights 56-game schedule will feature division only opponents during the regular season and Vegas will face each team in the division a total of eight times during the year. The Golden Knights will open the season at home against the Anaheim Ducks at T-Mobile Arena on Thursday, January 14, 2021.
Foley told KSHP's Vegas Hockey Hotline that he expects the season will be less than 60 games, saying it could be "48 or 56 games." But he said the fate of next season relies on when fans can return to NHL arenas.
The NHL is planning for a full 82-game schedule next season and the usual four-round, best-of-7 format in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Saturday. Start date is yet to be determined and fans may have to be phased in throughout the season.
