For Immediate Release
The BCHL has released its full schedule for the 2015-16 season.
Opening night is Sept. 11 but unlike the last three years, the Bauer BCHL Showcase will not be the start of the regular season. There will be two weekends of regular-season games before the Showcase takes place Sept. 24 to 27 in Chilliwack.
To view the full season schedule, http://www.bchl.ca/leagues/schedules.cfm?clientid=1413&leagueid=2393. (You can also find the league schedule under the 'Scoreboard' menu above and the 'League Schedule' page).
Each team plays 58 games this season. With the Wenatchee Wild joining the BCHL, there are now 17 teams and there will be 493 total games on the 2015-16 calendar.
After playing twice at the Showcase, each team will have 28 home dates and 28 on the road.
Again, the league is playing a full interlock schedule, meaning each team will host every other team and also visit every other team. This will be done once each with out-of-division teams while in-division rivals will meet multiple times home and away.
The regular season concludes on Sunday, February 28 with the playoffs starting Friday, March 4.
