The Islanders, who have reached the third round of the playoffs the past two seasons, will play 13 games on the road before UBS Arena is ready for their home opener on Nov. 20 against the Calgary Flames.

The expansion Seattle Kraken will also have to wait before Climate Pledge Arena is open, necessitating a five-game road trip. They'll open at home on Oct. 23 against the geographic rival Vancouver Canucks. 

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

The NHL released its full 2021-22 regular-season schedule on Thursday. It will be 82 games again, starting on Oct. 12 with two games. It will run through April 29.

Other schedule highlights:

— An Olympic break, from Feb. 7-22, has been built in, though no agreement has been reached yet to send NHL players to the 2022 Games. If talks fall through, a revised regular season that has been seen by teams already, according to the Associated Press, will be released.
