The 2020 Winter Classic will be held at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
The Heritage Classic will be played between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets. The venue was also not stated, leaving open several possibilities - AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the soon-to-be vacated home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Park, or potentially the Cotton Bowl in Dallas' Fair Park. The NHL Heritage Classic™ returns to the NHL regular-season schedule after games in 2016 in Winnipeg, 2014 in Vancouver, 2011 in Calgary and 2003 in Edmonton.
The 2019 Winter Classic will be held in Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind. The opponents for the Avalanche, as well as the date, have yet to be announced. It will mark the first National Hockey League regular-season outdoor game for the Stars.
Bettman also announced the Heritage Classic will return on October 26 when the Winnipeg Jets play the Calgary Flames at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan.
With the Stars playing in their first outdoor games, 2020 will be a welcome break from the usual Blackhawks vs. Bruins/Rangers/Penguins outdoor game.
"It is a privilege to have the opportunity to host an outdoor game at the historic Air Force Academy", Colorado Avalanche General Manager Joe Sakic said in the press release. It's the third time St. Louis has hosted the All-Star Game and the first in thirty-two years, the last back in 1988. They practiced at the Notre Dame Compton Family Ice Arena, which was scheduled to host an NCAA men's hockey game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Boston College early Monday evening.
