Today the NHL announced that the 2015 Winter Classic will be held at Washington D.C.’s Nationals Park. This year’s annual outdoor celebration of hockey will feature the Washington Capitals and the Chicago Blackhawks, and will take place on Jan 1, 2015.

Both teams will be making their second appearance in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, and the Caps will  be making their hosting debut. In 2011, the Capitals defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in front of a crowd of 68,111 people at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. The Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at historic Wrigley Field in 2008, with Detroit winning 6-4.

“We are thrilled the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® will be played at Nationals Park as we welcome the Chicago Blackhawks and their fans to our nation’s capital,” said Capitals Majority Owner Ted Leonsis.

Located in Southeast Washington, south of the Capitol and adjacent to the Navy Yard, Nationals Park is home to MLB’s Washington Nationals. The 41,546-seat venue is complete with panoramic views of the riverfront, Navy Yard, the surrounding city and landmarks such as the Capitol and the Washington Monument.

This year’s game will be the fourth NHL Winter Classic to be held in a baseball stadium, with the iconic New Year’s Day game previously held at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The 2015 NHL Winter Classic will be held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 1, 2015.

The NHL is holding a press conference at Joe Louis Arena tomorrow for what is expected to be a formal announcement of what fans already know, the 2014 NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

This game was originally set to be the 2013 Winter Classic but the lockout put an end to that. Not wanting to disappoint the fans any further, the game will go on January 1, 2014 in Ann Arbor.

It is expected to draw the largest crowd in NHL history with approximately 110,000 fans from both sides looking to attend.

With that much demand, it is no shock that tickets are going to be difficult to come by. This will also be the first Winter Classic which involves a team from Canada and the Toronto Maple Leafs have a fan base that stretches far and wide, as do the Red Wings. So it is likely that there will be fans from all over the globe coming to experience this potentially record-setting event.

Fans can order tickets from SelectATicket.com for the 2014 Winter Classic as well as all other NHL hockey games.

This game will be one for the ages, be a part of history and contribute to a world record by attending the Winter Classic between Detroit and Toronto!

According to multiple reports, the 2012-13 NHL schedule will be released Thursday June 21st.

Considering the Stanley Cup Playoffs just ended and tonight is the NHL Awards event in Las Vegas, it seems a bit soon to already have next year’s schedule released. However, fans are already anxious for next season as the excitement of the NHL playoffs will do that to you!

There are a few key dates that fans are looking forward to. First would be opening night for their favorite team, and in particular the fans of the Los Angeles Kings will be fighting hard for opening night tickets to see the raising of the first Stanley Cup banner in the team’s history.

Next up would be the January 1st Winter Classic which is going to be the biggest one yet. The Detroit Red Wings will host the Toronto Maple Leafs in one of the most memorable Original Six matchups you’ll ever find – at Michigan Stadium (“The Big House”) in Ann Arbor in front of 100,000+ fans. To spice things up even further, recently it has been announced that alcohol WILL be served (it is not served during college games at Michigan Stadium) so that should bring smiles to some faces in the crowd for sure.

The next event is the NHL All Star Game in Columbus, Ohio. This could be a real sleeper. While Columbus is not exactly the first city you think of when you think hockey, fans of the Blue Jackets support their team through thick and thin and deserve some league-wide attention. Also with this superstar captain Rick Nash expected to be traded ahead of time, the prospect of him returning to Columbus representing a different team as an NHL All-Star is something that could provide some extra excitement to the event. Will the fans jeer him or cheer him?

After that there is speculation of another NHL Heritage Classic. Just like the Winter Classic, the Heritage Classic is an outdoor game played in Canada, between two Canadian cities. The early rumors were Winnipeg between the Jets and possibly the Montreal Canadiens but it is purely speculation at this point as nothing official has been announced.

The last date on the calendar fans will be interested in will be the NHL Trade Deadline. Although there isn’t as much trade activity as there used to be, mostly due to an earlier trade deadline than in past years, the salary cap complications and parity throughout the league, the trade deadline is so exciting it is treated as a holiday by some fans. There were reports all across twitter of fans taking the day off from work to follow the trades — now that is dedication!

Whatever team you cheer for or city you live in, tomorrow is the first step in looking forward to the 2012-13 NHL season.
