The Vancouver Canucks have quietly released their 2013 preseason schedule on their website.
- Monday, September 16 – vs. Sharks
- Wednesday, September 18 – vs. Oilers
- Saturday, September 21 – at Oilers
- Monday, September 23 – vs. Coyotes
- Tuesday, September 24 – at Sharks
- Thursday, September 26 – vs. Rangers
All games will start at 7pm and will broadcast live on the TEAM 1040. No television broadcast information has been released.
The 2013-14 regular season schedule was announced by the Canucks and NHL back on July 19. The Canucks announced their preseason opponents, but no dates or times were made available.
We knew the Canucks were going to play four home games and two road games against the San Jose Sharks, Edmonton Oilers, Phoenix Coyotes, and New York Rangers. The first game would be on September 16 against the Sharks, but that was all the Canucks revealed.
Teams are required under the collective bargaining agreement to schedule between six and eight preseason games. In the 2011-12 season, the Canucks played eight preseason games.
