A Vancouver Canucks 50th anniversary celebration, the annual Hockey Day in Canada and an outdoor game in Regina mark Canadian highlights on the 2019-20 NHL schedule.

The 1,271-game schedule, released Tuesday, includes the Heritage Classic between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 26 at Mosaic Stadium in Regina.

It marks the first Heritage Classic – a series of outdoor games held in Canada introduced in 2003 – that will be played in a Canadian city without an NHL team.

The Jets play host to the Ottawa Senators in an afternoon game to kick off the day.
