Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady
The moment that so many of us having been waiting for -- ever since we heard a new CBA deal was in place -- has finally arrived. And now Ducks fans know so much more about how we're spending our next four months.

The schedules for all 30 NHL teams were officially revealed today, and as expected it's a 48-game slate that unfurls on January 19 and features only opponents within the conference.

Also as expected, the Ducks will open on the road, facing Vancouver a week from today (A FREAKIN' WEEK FROM TODAY!) and then Calgary two nights later. They open at home against those same Canucks on January 25 and then face one-time playoff rival Nashville back at Honda Center the very next night. The regular season ends a few weeks later than normal -- April 27 at home against Phoenix (let's hope the actual Ducks season lasts a whole lot longer). And in between, is a pretty wild ride.

Because it's a compact schedule (48 games in 99 days), there are definitely some quirks, including two instances in which the Ducks play the same team three games in a row (somewhat like a mini playoff series). The Ducks play at Phoenix on March 2, at Phoenix two days later (Angels spring training and Ducks hockey anyone?) and then home against Phoenix another two days after that. Anaheim is at Dallas April 1, home to Dallas on April 3 and home again to the Stars on the 5th.

And if you like your Ducks-Red Wings games, you're going to love the weekend of March 22, when Anaheim faces Detroit that Friday and again on Sunday. That's part of a home stretch in which the Ducks play Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and Monday at Honda Center (yikes).

More scheduling quirks: Within the Pacific Division, the Ducks will play San Jose and Dallas five times each, but the Kings and Phoenix four times each. The always highly anticipated Kings games (even more so this year) come February 2 at Honda Center, Feb. 25 in LA, April 7 at home and April 13 at Staples Center.

Of the 24 home dates, 13 will take place on weekends (six Fridays, three Saturdays and four Sundays). The Ducks face in 10 back-to-back sets of games and take a season-long six-game road trip from Feb. 6-16 that includes stops in Colorado (Feb. 6), Dallas (Feb. 8), St. Louis (Feb. 9), Chicago (Feb. 12), Detroit (Feb. 15) and Nashville (Feb. 16).

Ducks training camp is opening tomorrow at Honda Center, and keep checking AnaheimDucks.com for details on the public attending (and more).

Now, some business:

Individual regular season tickets for all Ducks games at Honda Center will go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. As a special promotion for Opening Night vs. Vancouver on Jan. 25, fans that purchase an individual game ticket will receive a voucher good for 50% off a future game on the 2012-13 schedule at Honda Center (excludes Terrace Value price point).
