Senators announce 2018-19 AHL schedule



The Belleville Senators are pleased to unveil its 76-game 2018-19 American Hockey League schedule.

With 38 home dates set for this coming season, the Senators will play a more balanced scheduled per month at home welcoming 15 different teams to the Yardmen Arena including all-Canadian match-ups against Toronto, Laval and Manitoba as well as a new divisional opponent in the Cleveland Monsters, the AHL affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

“We’re delighted to reveal our season schedule as we head into our second year,” Senators COO Rob Mullowney said. “Our new schedule presents a more balanced offering to our fan base at home while still including our key rivals from Toronto and Laval.

“Fans will also get their first ever look at the Grand Rapids Griffins, AHL Affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, along with new divisional opponent the Cleveland Monsters. With nearly 70 percent of our home games taking place on either a Friday or Saturday night we can’t wait to kick off this season at home on October 17.”

The Senators will play 54 games within the North Division as they will square off with the Toronto Marlies (12 games), Laval Rocket (12), Cleveland Monsters (8), Utica Comets (6), Binghamton Devils (6), Syracuse Crunch (6) and the Rochester Americans (4).

Belleville will also face the Grand Rapids Griffins for the first time in franchise history and host the Manitoba Moose for the second straight season. The Sens will also face six of the eight teams from the Atlantic Division.

The team will open the season on Oct. 6 with a trip to Rochester and will begin its first home stand of the season on Oct. 17 against the Devils, as announced Tuesday.

Grand Rapids will be in town on Oct. 26-27 while the Marlies make the first of its six visits to the Yardmen Arena on Nov. 9.

With the division realignment, Belleville will play Cleveland for the first time Dec. 21 before welcoming them to the Yardmen Arena on Jan. 9.

For the second straight year, the Sens will be busy over the holiday season.  The team faces the Marlies on the road on Boxing Day in Toronto at Scotiabank Arena and will welcome Laval and Binghamton at the Yardmen Arena on Dec. 27 and Dec. 29 respectively.

The Senators will host Laval on Family Day and will wrap up the regular season on April 14 with a home tilt against Rochester.

The Sens’ longest home-stand comes in October as they’ll play six straight times at the Yardmen Arena between Oct. 17-27. The team’s longest period away from the Yardmen will come between Dec. 9-26 when they have eight straight road games over that span.

Twenty-six of the team’s 38 home games during 2018-19 will be played on either a Friday or Saturday with 14 of those contests taking place on Saturday. The Sens will also play nine times at the Yardmen Arena on Wednesday night.

Thirty-six of the team’s 38 home games will begin at 7pm with the Family Day game and season finale the only exceptions as they will both start at 2pm. The Senators will also only play two 3-in-3’s all season long (Dec. 7-9 and Feb. 8-10).

Both November and December will be busy for the Senators as they’ll play 13 games in each month, their highest during the season.
