We're 4 months away from the start of the AHL season, but it's never to early to start thinking about the Albany Devils.

Mark your calendars, the Devils have released six guaranteed home dates for the upcoming 2011-12 season - including the home opener.

The dates are listed below with times and opponents to be determined.

  • Saturday, October 8 (Home Opener)
  • Saturday, November 5
  • Sunday, December 4
  • Saturday, December 17
  • Friday, December 30
  • Monday, January 16

Last year, the Devils finished the season with 70 total points and a 32-42-1-5 record.  They finished in last place in the AHL's East Division.  It was their first year in Albany - after spending the previous 4 seasons in Lowell.

The American Hockey League will release the remaining schedule and opponents in August.
