2024/25 Avalanche Preseason Schedule Released; What That Means For Training Camp

Colorado Avalanche fans won’t have to wait long to get a look at the very generic jerseys that the Utah Hockey Club will be wearing.

On Thursday, the Avalanche released their preseason schedule for the 2024-25 season. As is tradition, they play the same three teams twice, with each team getting a home game. The Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights have become regulars for Colorado match up against in the preseason, but Utah is new. The third team is usually the Minnesota Wild, but the NHL is probably looking to build a rivalry with the Utah, given they are now the closest team to Denver.

Here’s the schedule in table form.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the Avalanche and Utah open the regular season against each other, but we won’t know if that’s the case for another week or two. For now, you can mark your calendar with these games and star planning your Fall.

This also gives everyone an idea on when training camp will open. In past seasons, the Avalanche have had three days of training camp leading into that first preseason game, so if you put two and two together, I’d expect Colorado to hit the ice for training camp on Friday, September 20. That would mean players would report for physicals on September 19, which is also when Media Day takes place.

Who will actually be playing in the preseason is another question entirely. We know Valeri Nichushkin won’t be there, and no one is sure if Gabriel Landeskog will either. Colorado will fill out most of their depth chart over the next two weeks, giving fans something to look forward to when the team hits the ice.

As previously mentioned, expect the full schedule for next season to be released before July 1, so that everyone can really fill out their calendars for the next 10 months.
