The Arizona Coyotes announced their schedule for the 2021-22 season in late July but on Friday released game start times.

The Coyotes will open the season on the road Oct. 14 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Two days later the team will play in Buffalo against the Sabres before the home opener on Oct. 18, with Arizona hosting the St. Louis Blues.

The schedule, back to a traditional 82 games featuring 41 at home and 41 away, has the Coyotes playing 26 of those against their fellow Central Division teams. The other 56 games will be composed of three each against the remaining Western Conference teams and two apiece for the teams in the Eastern Conference.

The NHL has yet to announce if its players will be allowed to participate in the 2022 Winter Olympics, which take place during that schedule in February from the seventh to the 22nd. Talks remain ongoing within the league on making that a possibility.

The Coyotes will be starting a new era in the 2021-22 season. It will be the first year with Andre Tourigny as the team’s head coach and the second with general manager Bill Armstrong at the helm. Arizona last season went 24-26-6 in its last season under former head coach Rick Tocchet.
