Each year the National Hockey League holds the Winter Classic. This (approximate) New Year’s Day event is played outdoors like in a football stadium and is a regular hockey game featuring a local area that has an NHL team. The first Winter Classic was held in New York in 2008 and it featured a face-off between the Pittsburg Penguins and the hosting Buffalo Sabres. It was played at Ralph Wilson Stadium. There have been NHL Winter Classics played every year since then except for one. Get your tickets now for this exciting and completely unique NHL event.
