Has this week been busy enough? An expansion draft, trades, awards, more trades, an entry draft tomorrow, probably more trades. Holy crap. And it’s only Thursday.

Well, here’s one more for you: NHL clubs have released their 2017-18 regular season schedule.

Behold: the Islanders’ slate. We already knew the first two games. Here are the other 80.

Stray Observations:

  • On the whole, the schedule looks a lot more forgiving than last season’s in terms of home stands and road trips. There’s no insane, nine-game, 11,000-mile, two-and-a-half week franchise record Oregon Trail-esque trip like the one they endured last time. The longest trip this season starts with a stop in Pittsburgh on March 3rd, before swinging out to Western Canada.
  • Speaking of Western Canada, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Strome play their first games against their former clubs on November 7th at Barclays Center.
  • The Islanders first game against the Vegas Golden Knights is October 30th in Brooklyn. They’ll play again in Las Vegas on January 25th, 2018.
  • I count 15 back-to-backs but I could be wrong.
  • Once again, the Islanders and Devils won’t play until relatively later in the season on January 7th, 2018.
  • Just four games against the Rangers, once in early October, then not again until the middle of January.

The Islanders posted a few neat infographics to Twitter as well.

Sorry, dude.
