Here are 15 things you need to know about the NPHL Schedule:

1. TUESDAY GAMES ARE ELIMINATED: There are no Tuesday scheduled games this season. This is the first time since the 1950s that the NPHL had scheduled no Tuesday games.
CHANGE: ONE WEDNESDAY GAME IS ADDED!

2. NEUTRAL SITE GAME: HIGH PRAIRIE VS GRIMSHAW AT PEACE RIVER: on Dec. 29, High Prairie plays Grimshaw at Peace River [GRIM home game]. Peace River has not hosted a regular season NPHL game since Feb. 4, 2010 when Peace River defeated Valleyview 7-5. It will be the first regular season NPHL game in Peace River in 3,150 days.

3. NEUTRAL SITE GAME: MANNING VS DAWSON CREEK AT FAIRVIEW: on Nov. 17, Manning plays Dawson Creek at Fairview [DC home game]. Fairview has not hosted a regular season NPHL game since Friday, Jan. 28, 2011 when Fairview defeated High Prairie 10-9 in a shootout. It will be the first regular season NPHL game in Fairview in 2,850 days.

4. TERRY HOULDER SWEATER RETIREMENT CEREMONY: The Grimshaw Huskies will retire Terry Houlder’s No. 20 in a home game versus High Prairie on Saturday, Jan. 12. Houlder first played from 1987-88. He played in 669 games and amassed 566-1197-1763 points. He was on seven NPHL championship teams in 12 years from 1987-88 to 1998-99. Houlder is a 4-time NPHL MVP, 5-time NPHL Most Gentlemanly Player, 5-time NPHL Leading Scorer; 8-time NPHL Best Centre, and 15-time NPHL All-Star. He led Grimshaw in scoring 10 times and the Grimshaw-Peace River Wild once.

5. NO BACK-TO-BACK GAMES: The High Prairie Regals are the only team to not play back-to-back-game this season. All their games are on Thursday and Saturday. Manning leads the league with 10 back-to-backs this season; Falher does it seven times and Grimshaw four times.

6. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS OUT: The High Prairie Regals are the only team to not play any Friday games this season. Manning leads the way with 10 Friday games, followed by Falher with seven and Grimshaw with five.

7. SATURDAY NIGHTS DONINATE PLAY: As usual, Saturday is the busiest night of the season. In all, 39 of the season’s 78 games [50 per cent] comprise the schedule. Next is Thursday with 23 games [29.49 per cent], the Friday with 15 games [19.23 per cent], and Wednesday with 1 game [1.26 per cent].

8. OPENING NIGHT WOES: The High Prairie Regals can tie the Fairview Kings for the longest losing streak on opening night with a loss at Manning on Nov. 3. Currently, HP has lost eight straight opening nights games; Fairview’s current streak is at nine games. Valleyview also has currently lost seven straight openers. At least HP does not open vs FAL. HP has lost four straight opening night games to FAL, and one each to Peace River, Fairview, Hythe and Grimshaw.

9. DAWSON CREEK CANUCKS OPENING NIGHT NOTES: This is the latest DC has opened their season in NPHL history and DC becomes the last team to begin play in the current season. DC has never opened their season at home vs GP, or had their first home game of the season vs GP. The only other time DC opened their season vs GP was on Oct. 29, 2009 when GP defeated DC 5-2.
DC OPENING NIGHT STREAK: Won 2
DC OPENING NIGHT RECORD LAST 10 GAMES: 5-5

10. FORT ST. JOHN FLYERS OPENING NIGHT NOTES: If there is such a thing as opening night tradition in the NPHL, this is it. Since the 2004-05 season, this will mark the eighth time FSJ has opened its season vs GP. FSJ will look to even the overall series as GP is 4-3 in the previous seven games. FSJ has split their four games opening vs GP while GP is 2-1 in opening night games in GP.
FSJ OPENING NIGHT STREAK: Won 4
FSJ OPENING NIGHT RECORD LAST 10 GAMES: 6-4

12. FALHER PIRATES OPENING NIGHT NOTES: Since the start of the 1990-91 season [when I started recording results] GRIM has only opened once in FAL, and only three times overall. GRIM won the last time FAL opened against GRIM, 6-2 on Nov. 2, 2012. The teams split the two times FAL opened at GRIM, losing 13-4 on Nov. 9, 1993, and winning 3-1 on Nov. 3, 2015.

FAL OPENING NIGHT RECORD LAST 10 GAMES: 8-2

13. GRIMSHAW HUSKIES OPENING NIGHT NOTES: GRIM opens at home vs MAN for the second straight year and will look for revenge as MAN won 6-5 Nov. 3, 2017. Since 1990-91, GRIM has opened at home vs MAN only twice, winning the other game 7-5 on Nov. 4, 1997. This marks the sixth time overall GRIM will open vs MAN since 1990-91. GRIM has won all three opening night games in MAN: 5-3 on Oct. 30, 2015, 5-3 on Nov. 2, 2007, and 9-6 on Oct. 30, 1998.

GRIM OPENING NIGHT RECORD LAST 10 GAMES: 6-4

14. HIGH PRAIRIE REGALS OPENING NIGHT NOTES: This will mark the sixth time since 1990-91 that HP will open vs MAN, with the fifth time the game is at MAN.
