- Advertisement -

Hockey fans, the NHL regular season is nearly here. We are in the final week of the preseason, with Saturday, Oct. 8 marking the final day of warming contests ahead of the regular season. 

Teams have begun to cut down their rosters, sending players down to the AHL or back to their junior clubs. There are still some decisions to be made, but there are a few more matchups on the schedule. 

While a majority of the games are only available on local TV stations, there are some games that will be available to stream on ESPN+, which will be home to over 1,000 NHL regular season games this season. It is one of the final chances for fans to watch their teams before the official start of the season.
