Note 3: All teams’ 2012 Preseason schedules are now final.
Note 2: Updated 20 July for publication of FLA and NJDs’ 2012 Preseason Schedules. Still remaining is the official release confirmation for NYR (although all pre-season games for the remaining 29 teams are confirmed).
Note 1: Updated 10 July for publication of PHI’s 2012 Preseason Schedule. Still remaining for confirmation are FLA, NJD and NYR.
As you know, each year’s NHL preseason schedule is difficult to nail down. This year, although better, is no exception. But to keep us on track (and under the assumption we will play without a stoppage), below is the 2012 NHL Preseason schedule. Notes:
1. All of the Western Conference is officially released.
2. FLA, NJD, NYR and PHI are not yet officially released. Their partial schedules are indicated in black/bold/italicized font.
3. Where an abbreviated location appears in parentheses after the opponent, that game is not played in an NHL arena. (i.e. “Brookl” on 2 October at 7:30pm local is Brooklyn where NJD plays at NYI.) Remember these games do not have standard NHL connectivity so stats will be sketchy. You will do just as well finding a fan that is Tweeting the results in real-time.
4. Times listed by time are always attempted to be given in that team’s local time. We will watch for errors or changes to keep this schedule current.
5. Games listed have been confirmed through at least two, online sources. We will continue to watch for Eastern Conference updates and changes to times and locations as appropriate.
So without further ado, here is the schedule as we know it…
