Winnipeg’s new NHL team will host the storied Montreal Canadiens in the first regular season game to be played at the MTS Centre on Sunday Oct. 9 at 4 p.m., the Free Press has learned.
True North confirmed on Wednesday the historic contest, and also said the full schedule will be released Thursday.
Earlier Wednesday, Winnipeg’s NHL team finally appeared on another team’s preseason schedule.
The Ottawa Senators announced they will host the Winnipeg club on Monday, Sept. 26 in Conception Bay South, N.L.
The game is part of the annual Hockeyville celebrations. Conception Bay South won the right to host an exhibition game through a Kraft-sponsored contest this past NHL season.
