ETC: Oilers First Home Game In 2018-19 Will Be Against Boston

First home game will take place on October 18th, 2018

NHL: Boston Bruins at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Edmonton’s first home game of the 2018-19 NHL season will be against Peter Chiarelli’s former club, the Boston Bruins.

Edmonton opens the season against the New Jersey Devils on October 6th in Gothenburg, Sweden. They will then be on the road until their home-opener twelve days later. It’s fair to assume that there will be four or five games in between October 6th and the 18th, which is a fairly long road trip to open the season.

The rest of the NHL season comes out tomorrow. Until then, we’ll have to wait.
