Blackhawks Will Host Wings In Outdoor Game

Derek HarmsworthSenior Writer IMay 29, 2008

As first reported by TSN this morning, the Chicago Blackhawks will host the Detroit Red Wings in next season's NHL Winter Classic.

Since the success of last January's game between the Sabres and the Penguins, rumours have been swirling as to where the event may be held next.

Although no site is confirmed, rumoured venues include Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs or Soldier Field which is the stadium for the Chicago Bears.

An outdoor game is always exciting.  Factor in the Windy City, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and the exciting young Blackhawks taking on the Western Conference, and possibly Stanley Cup champion Red Wings, and this years Winter Classic will be another fantastic game.

No date has been set but the game will take place in January, likely again on New Years Day.
