Winnipeg Jets center Bryan Little will be keeping his own diary throughout the 2019 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic. The outdoor game against the Calgary Flames will be played at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan, on Saturday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN1, CITY, TVAS2, NHL.TV). He will check in regularly this week with behind-the-scenes access.
The 31-year-old, the No. 12 pick in the 2006 NHL Draft, is in his 13th season with the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers. He has 517 points (215 goals, 302 assists) in 838 NHL games.
In his first entry, Little writes about not being able to play in the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic between the Jets and Edmonton Oilers at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, and how excited he is to finally get the chance to play in an NHL outdoor game.
