July 7th, 2008 | Posted by admin in NHL

The 2009 NHL Winter Classic will be held in Chicago at Wrigley Field according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The Detroit Red Wings will play the Chicago Blackhawks on New Years Day 2009, although the official announcement isn’t expected for at least a couple of weeks.

The first NHL outdoor game was in 2003 when the Montreal played the Oilers in Edmonton, in a game dubbed the “Heritage Classic”. The second outdoor NHL Game was last year in Buffalo, with the Penguins playing the Sabers. The game in Buffalo drew more than 71,000 fans to the stadium, an NHL record. Carrying on with a new tradition, the Blackhawks and the city of Chicago will receive the 2009 NHL outdoor game with high expectations.
