The National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA), together with Live Nation, today announced that the 2024 NHL Global Series™ presented by Fastenal will be headlined by the Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils.

The Stars and Panthers will meet at Nokia Arena in Tampere, Finland, on Friday, Nov. 1 and Saturday, Nov. 2. The 2024 NHL Global Series presented by Fastenal will be the first experience for the Stars playing regular-season games outside North America, becoming the 27th franchise to play in such games. The Sabres and Devils will begin the 2024-25 regular season by facing off in a pair of games in Prague, Czechia, at O2 Arena, Friday, Oct. 4 and Saturday, Oct. 5.

Tampere will welcome back a pair of native sons, in Stars forward Roope Hintz and Panthers Captain Aleksander Barkov. In addition to hailing from Tampere, both of those mainstays spent time with SM-liiga teams that call Nokia Arena home. Hintz started his SM-liiga career with Ilves Tampere in 2013-14, and Barkov was drafted second overall in 2013 by the Panthers from Tappara Tampere. There will be a homecoming for a trio of other Finnish-born Stars regulars, defensemen Jani Hakanpää, Miro Heiskanen and Esa Lindell. Additionally, Panthers defenseman Niko Mikkola also spent a season (2017-18) with Tappara Tampere, and two other teammates, forwards Anton Lundell and Eetu Luostarinen, will also be returning to their home country.
