Blackhawks, Soldier Field included in NHL's proposed 2014 Stadium Series

Blackhawks, Soldier Field included in NHL's proposed 2014 Stadium Series

Well, the rumors of the Chicago Blackhawks and outdoor games are flying today.  Earlier this evening, I wrote about a report claiming the Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild could meet for the 2015 Winter Classic.

Tonight, various hockey journalists, including TSN's panel of insiders, reported on the possibility of a six game "Stadium Series" that would take place in various outdoor venues next season.

January 1st

Winter Classic

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings at the Big House in Ann Arbor, MI

January 25th

Anaheim Ducks vs LA Kings at Dodger Stadium

January 26th

New Jersey Devils vs New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium**

January 29th

New York Islanders vs New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium**

March 1st

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Chicago Blackhawks at Soldier Field

March 2nd 

Heritage Classic

Ottawa Senators vs Vancouver Canucks at BC Place

**events would coincide with Super Bowl week in New York

Anyone else concerned it could be 70 degrees at Soldier Field in March?  I guess if they can make it work at Dodger Stadium, they can make it work at Soldier Field.

While these games are just rumors at this point, the TSN panel seemed fairly confident that these games can and will occur.
