The NHL has released its full preseason schedule, which includes the first NHL games played in China, the debut of the Vegas Golden Knights expansion franchise, and the opening of Little Caesars Arena, the new home of the Detroit Red Wings.

As per usual, the Florida Panthers will open with a split-squad doubleheader versus the Nashville Predators. This year the two teams will meet at Bridgestone Arena on September 19. The Cats will play three straight games against the Tampa Bay Light (away-home-home) before finishing the exhibition slate with a roadie against the Montreal Canadiens.
