The Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday announced the dates and opponents for their 56 regular season games in 2020-21.

The franchise will open its 25th year in Arizona on Thursday, Jan. 14, at Gila River Arena against the San Jose Sharks.

The National Hockey League not only shortened the league schedule but re-aligned itself with coronavirus precautions in mind. There will be four divisions — North, South, East and West — and all play will be within them through the first two rounds of the playoffs to minimize travel and the potential for COVID-19 to disrupt the season.

The league is allowing for the possibility of playing games at neutral sites if needed.

Arizona will play in the West Division against Anaheim, Colorado, Los Angeles, Minnesota, San Jose, St. Louis and Vegas.

Below is the list of dates and opponents for the Coyotes.

Times and television assignments will be released at a later date.
