When the Chicago Wolves defend their Central Division title during the 2017-18 season, they'll navigate a 76-game American Hockey League schedule that features several traditional rivals, four new opponents and the team's first trip to California in 18 seasons.

The Wolves will open the regular season on the road on Oct. 6 against the Texas Stars. The Wolves will celebrate their 24th home opener on Oct. 14, when the Ontario Reign make their inaugural appearance at Allstate Arena in Rosemont.

When the Wolves travel to San Diego on Jan. 10, it will mark the franchise's first visit to California since clinching the Turner Cup Western Conference Semifinal series against the Long Beach Ice Dogs on May 3, 2000.

The Wolves have just six Central Division rivals this season as the Charlotte Checkers have moved to the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division.
