History Of The NHL Winter Classic®

The NHL Winter Classic® is one of the greatest spectacles in all of sports. A true bucket list event. A New Year's tradition, where one city is awarded this event that honors hockey's outdoor origins in an awe-inspiring setting reimagined and transformed for the NHL. It's a party to ring in the new year and welcoming to all audiences.

The NHL Winter Classic® was established in 2008 when the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins squared off at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY. Since then, the event has taken place in venues across the continent, including Wrigley Field in Chicago, Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Fenway Park in Boston, and the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
