The NHL is ready to announce the site and teams of next years Winter Classic.
According to reports, the NHL is ready to announce that next years Winter Classic will be played between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks at Wrigley Field.
Last years Winter Classic between Buffalo and Pittsburgh was viewed as a huge success and led most teams to try to host an outdoor game. The biggest previous rumor floating was that the game would be played in Yankee Stadium as the last sporting event held there.
The Red Wings look as if they’ll be the defending Stanley Cup Champs for this game and will be matched up against a young talented team, much like they’re playing in the Stanley Cup Finals right now.
Chicago boasts a young core of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, and Duncan Keith who almost made the Playoffs this year but fell just short in the very difficult Western Conference.
