The Dallas Stars are reportedly getting some positive news amid the Jim Lites-Jamie Benn-Tyler Seguin saga: Sportsnet’s John Shannon is reporting that the team will host the 2020 Winter Classic.
Sportsnet also reports that “NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is slated to make ‘special 2019-20 event announcements’ during the second intermission of Tuesday’s Winter Classic game, according to a press release.”
The Winter Classic began in 2008 and has been held once every year (except in 2013 due to a lockout). It’ll be the first time the Stars are a part of the annual tradition. Past games have been held in New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Washington D.C., Missouri and Indiana.
