LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The National Hockey League has announced the Golden Knights schedule for the 2020-21 regular season. The full schedule can be found below. All times and broadcast information will be released at a later date.

The Golden Knights 56-game schedule will feature division only opponents during the regular season and Vegas will face each team in the division a total of eight times during the year. The Golden Knights will open the season at home against the Anaheim Ducks at T-Mobile Arena on Jan. 14, 2021 and will also face the Ducks two days later on Jan. 16, 2021 at T-Mobile Arena.

As part of the agreement the league and the National Hockey League Players’ Association reached, the Stanley Cup Playoffs will be played following the regular season and will feature 16 teams in the traditional best-of-seven, four-round format and conclude around mid-July. The top four teams in each division will qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with intradivisional play in the first two rounds (#1 vs. #4; #2 vs. #3). The four teams that advance to the Semifinal Round would be seeded by their regular season points total, with the No. 1 seed playing the No. 4 seed in one series and the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds meeting in the other.

As previously announced, in reaching an agreement on the format for the 2020-21 season, the NHL and NHLPA determined that the ongoing closure of the U.S.-Canada border required realignment and the League and the Players also sought to minimize team travel as much as possible by shifting to exclusively intradivisional play. It is the current plan to play games in the home arenas of participating teams while understanding that most arenas will not, at least in the initial part of the season, be able to host fans. However, depending on prevailing conditions both in local markets and across North America, the League will be prepared to play games in one or more “neutral site” venues per division should it become necessary.

Additional information regarding fan attendance for Golden Knights home games will be distributed when confirmed.
