The NHL's annual Winter Classic game will be held in South Bend, Indiana on New Year's Day.
During the second intermission of that contest, the league will likely announce that Mosaic Stadium will play host to a game on Saturday, October 26.
The two teams that will play on that afternoon will be the Calgary Flames and the Winnipeg Jets.
There has been lots of talk about a possible game coming to Regina since Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman discussed it during a recent Saturday night broadcast.
There were plans for a WHL outdoor game earlier this year between the Moose Jaw Warriors and Regina Pats to coincide with the Pats 100th anniversary, but that game was scrapped due to a combination of weather and low ticket sales. Whether or not a junior game is added to the schedule is not known.
Nice scoop Scruffdog!
I think I'll attend. It's a way to see the new stadium without supporting Chris Jones.
This announced game kicks the Roughriders to the curb and out of their home for a month making them play three away games in October... Hmmm... bad mistake! Rather have the Riders at home than a one off NHL game.
This just in meathead. It isn't all about the Riders even though you think it might be. The stadium also belongs to the city of Regina and not the Riders despite what you may think.
Still kicks the main money producing tenants to the curb for a month. Bad business.
