I have not been following much of the off-season NHL news, but this caught my eye immediately when I finally took a peek:

NHL to hold Winter Classic at Wrigley Field

A pair of Original Six teams will square off outdoors as the Chicago Blackhawks host the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field on New Year’s Day 2009, a game to be broadcast by Hockey Night in Canada.

These are not particularly two of my favorite teams, but who cares! Woo! Another outdoor NHL game is on its way!
