NHL Announces Hosts for 2020 All-Star and Outdoor Games

With news that the Dallas Stars are being given an outdoor game in 2020, you have to wonder what the Minnesota Wild need to do to get one of their own. A big reason for his pleasure: He's beginning to see signs that this team is finally coming together, on and off the ice. Dallas, which has never hosted the game before, would be southern-most location of the Winter Classic in its relatively brief history. Most went to the same tailor, and the outfits were outstanding. The events were officially announced today by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman during the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind. St. Louis has hosted the All-Star game twice before, once in 1970 and again in 1988.

"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 seems as though this year's event at Notre Dame Stadium was a saving grace for the National Hockey League and its most notable regular season game. The last Heritage Classic was held in Winnipeg in October 2016.

Ashley Young to leave Manchester United at the end of the season?
This season, he mostly played in the right back position under Jose Mourinho and even interim boss Solskjaer has used him in that role.

In fact, you'd nearly be forgiven for suggesting that we could see an outdoor game hosted by Las Vegas before we see a return of the contest to Minnesota. Fair Park's grand old stadium will host the NHL's 2020 Winter Classic next New Year's Day, becoming the 12th venue to host the league's mid-season showcase.

St. Louis will host the NHL All-Star festivities from January 24-26, 2020.

The Winter Classic, on sheer novelty if nothing else, should help Dallas fight back in 2020. The 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend will include the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills™ and the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game. Having this game in Colorado Springs also highlights the growth of hockey throughout the Rocky Mountain region since the Avalanche arrived in 1995. The 2020 NHL Stadium Series™ will mark the second time the NHL has brought a regular-season outdoor game to a U.S. service academy following the Washington-Toronto NHL Stadium Series™ matchup at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.in 2018.
