The 2013-14 Ontario Junior Hockey League schedule was released today. Some basics:

* 53-game schedule (26 home / 26 road / 1 Governor's Showcase game)

* Home & Home w/ each team in other Conference
* Home & Home w/ each team in your Conference's Division
* Remaining schedule in-division

The 2013 OJHL Governor's Showcase will be held in Oakville, Ontario & will be hosted by the Oakville Blades on September 28-29. (Can anyone imagine Buffalo hosting this in HARBORcenter / FNC?)

Jr. Sabres schedule highlights:

Season opener: Sunday, Sept. 8 at North York Rangers
Home opener: Monday, Sept. 9 vs Toronto Lakeshore Patriots
Two games at First Niagara Center - Nov. 12 vs Milton Icehawks & Jan. 14 vs Pickering Panthers

With the inter-conference play, we'll be making trips up to the Northeast Ontario (Kingston, Lindsay, Cobourg, etc).

There's just one more thing:

We're going outside.

The Jr. Sabres will play the defending League champion St. Michael's Buzzers on Sunday, December 15 at Frontier Field in Rochester - the OJHL's first-ever Outdoor Game. This game joins a slate of other great hockey action - an Amerks game, RIT men's & women's games, Section V high school hockey, plus a Sabres-Amerks alumni game.

This is going to be one hell of a ride. Is it September yet?
