TAMPA, Fla. – Believe it or not, it has been 30 years since the Lightning dropped the puck on their inaugural NHL season.

Believe it or not, another season is right on top of us and the Bolts are preparing for a number of 30th anniversary-themed events.

The first such event will be Saturday, Oct. 1 at Amalie Arena. Among all that is scheduled to take place will be game shows featuring current and former players. Smash Mouth will be on hand to conclude the day’s activities with a concert.

The following day, Sunday, Oct. 2, the team will hold an open practice. Fans can claim up to four free tickets to get a glimpse of the 2022-23 Lightning.

There will be opportunities on both days for fans to acquire autographs as well as engage in question-and-answer sessions. There will also be photo booths and kid zones.

As part of the 30th-anniversary celebration this season, the team will debut a Tampa Bay Lightning Hall of Fame that be unveiled during an alumni weekend. A date has yet to be determined. A 30th-anniversary logo will dress up center ice at Amalie. Take a look at it here.

The Lightning opens the season with three road games beginning Oct. 11 in New York against the Rangers. The home opener is on Oct. 18 against the Flyers.

There will be three preseason home games, the first of which will be on September 28 against Carolina.
