09-10 schedule finalized

In case anyone missed it, Everett’s schedule for the 2009-10 season is no longer tentative and has been finalized. Here’s some of the notable details:

– The season opener is Fri., Sept. 18 at Seattle

– The home opener is Sat., Sept. 26 vs. Vancouver.

– Brandon, the Memorial Cup host and the early odds-on favorite to win the league, comes to town on Oct. 24.

– The Eastern Conference swing takes place a tad earlier than usual as the Tips travel to the Central Division from Oct. 28-Nov. 6. That’s six games in 10 days, which is busy but isn’t too bad — though the night game in Red Deer on Halloween followed by the afternoon game in Edmonton the following day is going to be a doozy.

– The Christmas break is a little shorter this year — just seven days.

– Another New Year’s Eve home game and it’s a good one as Saskatoon, another early favorite, rings in the new year.

– It’s a busy February with 13 games in a 25 days. January’s not much better with 14 games in 29 days.

– The Prince George trip is late this year, the two road games taking place on Mar. 5-6, meaning a long road trip in the season’s penultimate weekend.

– The final home game is Sat., Mar. 13 against Chilliwack. The season ends the following night, in Spokane instead of Seattle this season.

Opponents broken down by team:

10 vs. Seattle

10 vs. Portland

10 vs. Spokane

8 vs. Tri-City

5 vs. Vancouver

5 vs. Kelowna

4 vs. Kamloops

4 vs. Prince George

4 vs. Chilliwack

Just one against each of the Eastern Conference teams, bringing the total to 72.

I haven’t had the chance to go through the entire thing with a fine-toothed comb yet. If there’s any other interesting stretches or quirks you’ve noticed, feel free to point those out in the comments section.
