The NHL announced Monday that it will officially reveal the 2017-18 regular-season schedule Thursday on NHL Network.
The hour-long show will begin at 3 p.m. ET, and it marks the first time the NHL is making the schedule release a televised presentation.
The schedule reveal will be part of the busiest week the NHL offseason has to offer.
Wednesday marks the NHL Awards show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and this year’s event is of the utmost importance because the expansion-draft picks of the Vegas Golden Knights will be announced during the broadcast.
The schedule reveal follows Thursday, and then the first round of the 2017 NHL draft will be Friday in Chicago.
To cap things off, the rest of the draft finishes Saturday.
There will then be a short respite before the action picks up once again when free agency opens July 1.
