BREAKING: The Chicago Blackhawks are officially heading outdoors!

Published January 4, 2024 at 3:23 PM
Big news from Elliotte Friedman's recent column the Chicago Blackhawks are headlining the 2025 Winter Classic. Brace yourselves because, yep, they're back on Jan. 1.

So, TV numbers weren't great, especially compared to Connor Bedard's debut. But guess what? The NHL knows that. Word is Bedard's joining the action next season, making it crystal clear this is Chicago's event, with skyrocketed televised numbers with Bedard.

Now, who are they playing and where's it happening? NBC Sports Boston spills the beans Wrigley Field is a top pick, and the Blues could be the opponents.

Remember the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley? That was a big deal for the Blackhawks. The NHL sees the 2025 Classic as a massive chance to market Bedard's Blackhawks.

Get ready for some awesome outdoor hockey with Chicago leading the charge!
