The Jets will play their home opener on Friday, Oct. 17

The Winnipeg Jets will open Year 4 of their rebirth on the road next October, have their longest home stand in the same month and then — they hope — finish up the regular season with a meaningful home date against the Calgary Flames.

The NHL released its 2014-15 schedule Sunday afternoon and the Jets will begin at Jobing.com Arena to face the Arizona Coyotes in their home opener on Thursday, Oct. 9, will be in San Jose for the Sharks home opener on Saturday, Oct. 11 and then are in Los Angeles a day later to face the Stanley-Cup champion Kings.

That grueling start will be followed by their own home opener on Friday, Oct. 17, part of the club’s longest home stand of the season that includes dates against the Flames, Carolina, Tampa Bay and Colorado.

The Jets’ schedule features the traditional New Year’s Eve matinee – with the New York Islanders here on Dec. 31st – and there will be six weekend afternoon contests through the year.

Winnipeg will have 29 meetings with their Central Division rivals -- Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville and St. Louis – with 14 at the MTS Centre.

The longest road trip of the season is a five-game stretch that runs from Nov. 8-16th and features stops in Ottawa, Montreal, Carolina, Nashville and Minnesota.
