The Montreal Canadiens announced the team's preseason schedule on Wednesday, a six-game slate beginning Monday, September 23rd. Montreal gets home games for four matchups and won't travel far for their home-and-home dates with Ottawa and Toronto. The schedule isn't surprising, as the Canadiens preseason slate usually features Ottawa and Toronto for most games.

The 2024-25 preseason will likely give fans the first look at their two first-round draft picks unless it is a college player or Ivan Demidov. The preseason is a great time to answer questions about the team's direction, and this year might be the debut of a new scorer if the Habs pull the trigger on any trades this offseason.

Montreal Canadiens 2024-25 Preseason Schedule

  • Monday, September 23rd - vs. Philadelphia Flyers - 7 PM ET
  • Tuesday, September 24th - vs. New Jersey Devils - 7 PM ET
  • Thursday, September 26th - @ Toronto Maple Leafs - 7 PM ET
  • Saturday, September 28th - vs. Toronto Maple Leafs - 7 PM ET
  • Tuesday, October 1st - vs. Ottawa Senators - 7 PM ET
  • Saturday, October 5th - @ Ottawa Senators - 7 PM ET

Tickets go on sale for the preseason on August 1st. Fans can expect the regular-season schedule in July, but the preseason schedule would suggest a start around October 12th. If I had to make an educated guess, fans should probably prepare for an October 12th Hockey Night in Canada matchup against the Maple Leafs.
