Fans of the Moose Jaw Warriors will have plenty of chances to see Regina Pats standout Connor Bedard in action next season, and they’ll have all sorts of games to check out at Mosaic Place as the regular season enters its final weeks.

The Warriors announced their full slate of home dates for the 2021-22 Western Hockey League campaign on Monday, and it’ll be a different-looking schedule compared to previous years.

The first and most obvious change is the lack of Western Conference teams: the WHL announced last month that there will be no travel between the two conferences this season, meaning no B.C. or U.S. Division teams will be making the trip east, and vice versa for the East and Central Divisions.

The lion’s share of contests will be played intra-division. For the Warriors, that means 19 of their 34 home games will be against East Division opponents, and five of those will be against the Regina Pats: their first meeting will be on Friday, Oct. 8, followed by Saturday, Nov. 20, Saturday, Dec. 18, Friday, Jan. 29 and Friday, Mar. 19.

The Pats are the only team the Warriors will face five times at home — the Winnipeg Ice and Saskatoon Blades will make four trips each to Mosaic Place, the Prince Albert Raiders and Brandon Wheat Kings three stops apiece.

The Warriors will also take on the Calgary Hitmen, Lethbridge Hurricanes and Swift Current Broncos three times at home; the Edmonton Oil Kings, Medicine Hat Tigers and Red Deer Rebels twice each.

Moose Jaw has six home dates in October, November and December, four games in January and February followed by March as their busiest month with seven games.

A total of 24 of their 34 contests will be played on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Warriors’ first pre-season game is Tuesday, Sept. 14 against the Brandon Wheat Kings, while their regular-season opener is Friday, Oct. 1 against the Saskatoon Blades.

Now that the schedule has been released, season-ticket packages are being put together, with more information coming soon.
