True North Sports & Entertainment Limited, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, today released the schedule for the upcoming 2011-12 regular season, the first season in the history of Winnipeg's newly acquired NHL franchise.

In the franchise's first ever home opening game at MTS Centre, Winnipeg will host the storied Montreal Canadiens on Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011 at 4:00 p.m. CT. They will then head out on the road for a pair of games against Winnipeg native Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday, Oct. 13th and then the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday, Oct. 15th before returning home to face the Pittsburgh Penguins at MTS Centre on Monday, Oct. 17th.

Start times are indicated on the schedule and vary depending on broadcast requirements. Television broadcast schedules have yet to be released.

There will be seven all-Canadian matchups at MTS Centre during the 2011-12 season. Winnipeg hosts the Canadiens on Oct. 9 and Dec. 22, Toronto Maple Leafs on Dec. 31 and Feb. 7, Ottawa Senators on Nov. 29 and March 26, and Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 27. Overall, the new NHL franchise will face Canadian teams on 15 different occasions.
