The NHL has announced that the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues will be the next competitors in the 2025 Winter Classic, taking place at the historic Wrigley Field, home to the Chicago Cubs.

While the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2015, their reputation has been tarnished by the recent Kyle Beach incident.

The team has settled with Beach, who was violated by people he trusted and has made amends with the NHL.


Despite this, some people have expressed outrage on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) about the upcoming Winter Classic game.



It is worth noting that the Blackhawks have played in five previous Winter Classics, most recently against the Boston Bruins at the Notre Dame Stadium in 2019.

However, some have chosen to drag up old controversies and criticize the organization.

It's important to remember that the current management team is not the same as those who were in charge during the 2009-2010 season.

The Chicago Blackhawks, an original six team, have secured another ticket to the Winter Classic due to their promising future superstar, Connor Bedard.

This will be their fifth time participating in the series, but unfortunately, they have yet to secure a win in the Winter Classic.

Only the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins have played as many games in the series, having participated in four games each.

The last time the Blackhawks hosted another NHL team at Wrigley Field was in 2009 against the Detroit Red Wings, where they lost 6-4.
