Multiple Outdoor Games Next Season

After having no outdoor game this year, the NHL plans to more than make up for it next season by scheduling 6 outdoor games. The first game on Jan 1 will be the actual Winter Classic between the Red Wings and the Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium. The other five events will be held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Yankee Stadium in New York, Soldier Field in Chicago and BC Place in Vancouver.



  • Toronto vs. Detroit at Michigan Stadium (Jan. 1)
  • Anaheim vs. Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium (Jan. 25)
  • New Jersey vs. N.Y. Rangers at Yankee Stadium (Jan. 26)
  • N.Y. Islanders vs. N.Y. Rangers at Yankee Stadium (Jan. 29)
  • Pittsburgh vs. Chicago at Soldier Field (March 1)
  • Ottawa vs. Vancouver at BC Place (March 2)


What I can't help but notice is that the Rangers have already been in a Winter Classic... you know the last one we had. Now they get to be in 2 more outdoor games. Ill save my rant for another day but at least the NHL is finally heading out west with outdoor games. Sooner or later they have to stop playing favorites.

At this point we do not know what these other events will be called so it is really hard to even begin any concepts but if you have any that you would like to see on an ice graphic on the concepts page, send them to frozenfaceoff57@gmail.com and Ill ice them.
