RALEIGH, NC – The National Hockey League today released the 2016-17 schedules for its 30 member clubs. The Carolina Hurricanes will open their 82-game campaign on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Winnipeg, and will play their first home game on Friday, Oct. 28, against the New York Rangers.

The Hurricanes’ early-season schedule will see the team embark on a six-game road swing, Oct. 13-26, during the North Carolina State Fair. Following the trip, the team will return to Raleigh for a two-game home stand. In November, the team will play seven games at PNC Arena, including five straight from Nov. 10-20. December will feature another seven home games, including visits from the Tampa Bay Lightning (Dec. 4), Washington Capitals (Dec. 16), Detroit Red Wings (Dec. 19), Boston Bruins (Dec. 23) and Chicago Blackhawks (Dec. 30).

As the calendar turns to 2017, the Hurricanes will welcome five Metropolitan Division opponents to PNC Arena in January, including the 2016 Stanley Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 20. Carolina will play 18 home games in February, March and April following the NHL All-Star break, with the regular-season home finale on April 8 against St. Louis.

Of the Hurricanes’ 41 home games, 26 fall on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. The team will play 16 sets of back-to-back games, matching the number of such sets it played in each of the last two seasons.
