The schedule reveal will happen at 4 p.m. Central time, and can be watched on NHL Network.
Three of the Chicago Blackhawks‘ 82 games are already known. They’ll open the season Oct. 4 in Ottawa before hosting Toronto three days later at the United Center. The Hawks will also host Boston on Jan. 1 in the 2019 Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana.
As a result of the the Hawks missing the playoffs, they’ll have a top-10 pick in this year’s draft for the first time since 2007, when they selected Patrick Kane with the top overall pick. Chicago is slated to pick at Nos. 8 and 27 in the first round Friday in Dallas.
