Just because timelines are fun to have (not really):

The WCH officially begins on September 17th, potentially ending on either September 29th or Oct 1st.

Bruins training camp begins on September 15th for the rookies and on September 22nd for other players. The first Preseason game is Monday, September 26th against the Blue Jackets. We’ll let you know if there will be a game day thread based upon viewing options available. Stay tuned for more info.

Hockey is on the horizon, kids. Are you ready?
