Admirals release 2018-19 schedule, with season starting Oct. 6 against Stars

The Milwaukee Admirals have a new head coach, Karl Taylor, and now they have a schedule.

The Admirals announced their 2018-19 schedule on Wednesday, with the season starting on Oct. 6 against the Texas Stars in Austin and the home opener a week later, on Oct. 13 against the Hershey Bears at Panther Arena.

The Admirals will play a 76-game unbalanced schedule over a regular season that lasts a little more than six months. Milwaukee concludes its campaign on the road April 14 against the Rockford IceHogs.

A highlight of the home portion of the schedule is that 24 of the 38 home games are on weekends – 13 on Saturday, including three afternoon contests, and 11 on Friday night. The remaining 14 games are split evenly between Tuesday and Wednesday nights, with no home games on Sunday, Monday or Thursday.

Milwaukee's schedule is evenly distributed with at least 11 games, and no more than 13, each month of the season. The team's longest homestand will be nine games, from Jan. 22 through Feb. 12, which is immediately followed by its longest road trip, a seven-game swing from Feb. 17 through March 3.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. on all Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday home games, while nine of the 13 Saturday games will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday games on Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 will be at 1 p.m., Dec. 22 starts at 3 p.m. and March 9 is at 7 p.m.

This is the third season the Admirals will play at Panther Arena, after calling the Bradley Center home since 1988. On June 29, Milwaukee announced it had hired Taylor as head coach to replace Dean Evason, who left to become an assistant for the NHL's Minnesota Wild.
