Here’s when Utah Hockey Club will play its first preseason game in Salt Lake City

The team has released its seven-game exhibition schedule.

Mark your calendars, Utah hockey fans.

The state’s new NHL team will play its first preseason game at Delta Center on Sept. 23.

Utah Hockey Club on Thursday released its full preseason schedule for the 2024-25 season. The team will only play once on its home ice during the seven-game slate.

Utah H.C. will debut on Sept. 22 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa, against the St. Louis Blues before taking on the Los Angeles Kings in Salt Lake City the next night.

That game will replace the previously scheduled Frozen Fury contest between the Kings and Vegas Golden Knights. That exhibition in Salt Lake City was scheduled before the creation of Utah Hockey Club, and the team says tickets will be refunded at the original point of purchase.

Utah’s third home preseason game, an Oct. 5 contest against the Colorado Avalanche, will be played at Maverik Center in West Valley City because of a conflict at Delta Center.
