NHL Lockout: NHL Cancels Winter Classic, Entire Season Next Step?

NHL Lockout: NHL Cancels Winter Classic, Entire Season Next Step?

Hyped by on November 3, 2012 Website:

The NHL Lockout has already wiped out 2012-2013 regular season games through the month of November. It has taken out the preseason, exhibition games and approximately 25 games for each NHL team.

The latest victim of the NHL Lockout is the Winter Classic.

While I acknowledge the fact that I have said that the NHL chose a poor day to hold their annual Winter Classic, it has nonetheless become a staple of the league. It is something that fans look forward to watching every season, seeing just what a different venue looks like while hosting a professional hockey game. We have seen games already played at baseball stadiums and, on January 1, 2013, we were supposed to see the game held at Michigan Stadium, also known as “The Big House.”
