Pittsburgh Penguins schedule, 2022-23

Despite the mid-July heat, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2022-23 schedule indicates that hockey is around the corner. One day before the NHL Draft, the league released the breakdown of what lies ahead for the Penguins.

They will open the season on Thursday, Oct. 13, at home against the Arizona Coyotes. The second game will be a Saturday night treat on  Oct. 15 against the Eastern Conference champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

The annual western Canada road trip is earlier than usual during the coming season. Instead of coming in November or December, the five-game trip will begin in Columbus in mid-October and run through Seattle one week later. That trip will include visiting old friends Jim Rutherford and Patrik Allvin in Vancouver.

The full trip is Columbus (Oct. 22), Edmonton (Oct. 24), Calgary (Oct. 25), Vancouver (Oct. 28), and Seattle (Oct. 29).

Pittsburgh Penguins Season Highlights:

  • Three-game road trip on Nov. 9-12: Washington, Toronto, Montreal.

  • First game against the Philadelphia Flyers is at the Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 25. First home game vs. Flyers is March 11.

  • First game at home against the New York Rangers is Dec. 20. However, the Penguins will face the Rangers three times from March 12-18.

  • The Winter Classic is Jan. 2 at Fenway Park against the Boston Bruins.

  • The Penguins visit Las Vegas on Jan. 5.

From the Penguins release:

The Penguins’ schedule includes two season-long five-game homestands. They are set for Nov. 26-Dec. 6, with matchups against Toronto (Nov. 26), Carolina (Nov. 29), Vegas (Dec. 1), St. Louis (Dec. 3,) and Columbus (Dec. 6), and Mar. 7-14 against Columbus (Mar. 7), NY Islanders (Mar. 9), Philadelphia (Mar. 11), NY Rangers (Mar. 12) and Montreal (Mar. 14).

Beginning with that Oct. 15 matchup with the Lightning at 7 p.m., the Penguins will play 16 weekend home games. There will be three on Fridays, 10 on Saturdays and three on Sundays, accounting for 39% of their home games.

Weird to see this and the draft advertised on social media and the like, and none of it (that I have seen) has Malkin or Letang. Glimpse of the future (even if Letang resigns). Feels strange.

The NHL scheduling the Rangers vs. Pens three times during the week of March 12th is truly absurd!
