The NHL announced a 56-game schedule on December 23, 2020, to begin on January 13, 2021 and run through May 8, with a new divisional alignment. On Monday, the league announced all of the game start times, completing the schedule for the 2021 season, which will see intradivisional play only.
The Anaheim Ducks will open the season on the road, first playing a two-game series against the Vegas Golden Knights in Nevada. They’ll return home to host the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche, two of the newcomers to the “West” Division. They’ll close out January hosting the other newcomer in the St. Louis Blues. The Blues were the last team the Ducks faced before the 2020 season was suspended and ultimately cancelled in March 2020.
The schedule is packed, with the Ducks playing every other night throughout January and 9 total back-to-backs, including a back-to-back series against the Minnesota Wild to close out the season on May 7 and May 8. The 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs will begin on May 11, with the top four teams in each division making the postseason.
You can view and download the full schedule on the Ducks’ website.
Currently, the Ducks are not set to appear on NBC nationally this season.
