According to Comcast SportsNet, the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings are scheduled to play in next year’s NHL Winter Classic at Wrigley Field. Yep, outdoor hockey.

Last year, a league-record 71,217 fans showed up at Ralph Wilson Stadium to watch the Sabres beat the Penguins 2-1 in a snowy outdoor contest.

Chicago’s Soldier Field and New York’s Yankee Stadium have also been named as possible hosts, although last week Commissioner Gary Bettman all but ruled out the latter.
