Here are some dates to mark on the calendar:

12 October c. Toronto

The Canadiens start the season at home for the first time since October 2013, taking on the latest trophy winner Hart, Ted-Lindsay and Maurice-Richard, Auston Matthews and Maple Leafs.

It’s a classic duel between two teams trying to start the year on a positive note, so tie your hat, it’s promising! There is no doubt that our loyal supporters will set the Bell Center on fire!

The match could also lead to the first ever NHL match for the choice of the 2022 Draft. To continue …


November 25 in Chicago

After four seasons behind the Habs bench as assistant manager, Luke Richardson was hired as the Blackhawks head coach on 29 June.

This will be Richardson’s first game against his former team, who had nothing but positive things to say about the former defender during his time in Montreal.

And the ever-legendary rendition of the American anthem at the United Center makes this match a must on TV if you can’t be there in person.


December 1 in Calgary

The annual trip to Western Canada is always a highlight of the calendar for both gamers and local fans.

The evening against former Canadiens winger Tyler Toffoli and the Flames will kick off the four-game away game that also includes stops in Edmonton (December 3) and Vancouver (December 5), before his last stay in Seattle (December 6) , on the other side of the border.

We already know that the fans will be there, as always, to support the Club in Alberta and British Columbia!


December 21 in Colorado

The Habs will invade the upper city of Denver to cross swords with reigning Stanley Cup champions, who won the prized trophy for the third time in their history on June 26.

If Artturi Lehkonen stays with Avalanche, it will be the first time he faces Montreal since his exchange on 22 March.

The Finn played a key role for Colorado in the last playoffs, scoring the winning goal in both the Conference Finals and the Stanley Cup Finals.


December 28 in Tampa Bay

The Amalie Arena is expected to be packed with Quebecers for the Canadiens’ first game after the Christmas holidays.

Martin St-Louis will lead his team against captain Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Lightning in the first of two consecutive games at Florida State.

A match against the Panthers (December 29) will conclude their stay in the sun, before the team travels to Washington (December 31) to end the year 2022.


January 5 c. New York Rangers

The first home game of the new year will see the Blueshirts arrive at the Bell Center.

Artemi Panarin, Mika Zibanejad and Adam Fox are among the most dynamic hockey players in the league and Vezina Trophy winner Igor Shesterkin is recognized as one of the best goalkeepers, so expect to have fun.

Rangers reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season, losing to the Lightning in six games.


11 February c. New York Islanders

As tradition dictates, the Family Weekend includes two afternoon games in two days, due to the NFL’s Super Bowl.

The Islanders will be the opponents on Saturday, before Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and the Oilers arrive in the arena on Sunday.

Both meetings are scheduled for 12:30 ET.


February 28 in San Jose

The Canadiens will begin their California journey with a stop in the San Francisco Bay Area to face the Sharks at the SAP Center.

Then, two matches in a row await them in California, with a match in Los Angeles (March 2) and another in Anaheim (March 3).

The four-game journey will culminate in a game against Max Pacioretty and the Golden Knights in Las Vegas on March 5th.


March 13 vs. Colorado

Fans will likely have the chance to show all the love they have had for “Lehky” during his 5 and a half seasons spent in Canadiens on this exceptional night.

From Nathan Mackinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, Mikko Rantanen to Conn Smythe Trophy winner Cale Makar, the Avalanche have a rich roster of stars who will challenge St. Louis soldiers to give their best.

Finding a way to defeat the reigning champions is always satisfying, regardless of the circumstances.


April 13 c. Boston

There is nothing better than ending the regular season with a game against the Bruins.

And it could be a very important match if both teams were in the playoff race.

With any luck, the Canadiens will start the post-season with the wind in their sails.
