Regular Season Schedule Released

I'll post the entire schedule here in the coming days but for now, here is the release from the Hitmen Office:

The Calgary Hitmen today announced the 2014-15 Western Hockey League regular season schedule.  Calgary will open their 20th anniversary season at home against the Red Deer Rebels on Saturday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. To commemorate the milestone year, a limited edition throwback jersey that honours the team’s inaugural season and pays tribute to the club’s namesake and one of the original owners, Bret “Hitman” Hart, will be worn for the first time.  The home opener will kick off a season-long celebration of two decades of Hitmen hockey.


Of the 36 Hitmen home games, 29 will be played on the weekend with the following breakdown: Friday (8), Saturday (7) and Sunday (14).  Home game highlights include the 20th annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss on Sun., Dec. 7 versus Moose Jaw and Fan Appreciation on Sun., Mar. 22 against Kootenay.  In addition, the 2014-15 campaign will feature a Battle of Alberta doubleheader weekend on Sat., Jan. 31 when the Hitmen host the Edmonton Oil Kings at 2:00 p.m. followed by a Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers evening matchup at the ’Dome.

Calgary’s longest home stand this season spans five games; the first starts Dec. 5-17 when the Hitmen host Edmonton (twice), Moose Jaw, Kamloops and Kelowna.  The second five-game home stand runs Jan. 11-23 when Brandon, Red Deer, Victoria, Regina and Swift Current visit the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The schedule also features a season-high 11-game road trip, with stops against U.S., B.C. and Central Division rivals, beginning Feb. 20 - Mar. 14 when the city welcomes the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier.

Hitmen home games played Monday through Saturday will have a 7:00 p.m. puck drop while Sunday games will begin at 4:00 p.m., with the expectation of select weekend games starting at 1:00 p.m. or 2:00 p.m.  All Hitmen home and away games will be broadcast live on Sportsnet 960 The FAN (960 AM) or online at
