- Technically the Canes have three home games and three road games but one of the home games is in Quebec City against Montreal...
- All home games are in Raleigh (No games in Greensboro or Charlotte)
- Canes will play four games in four days from 9/18-9/21
- Canes will get their first look at new divisional opponent: Columbus as they take them on twice during the preseason
- The Canes will face their rival from the north twice, the Buffalo Slugs... I mean Sabres
- The Canes face Montreal twice, a team that they struggled against severely last year.
