Winter Classic 2017

2017 Winter Classic Logo Revealed

On Tuesday morning, the St. Louis Blues hosted a press conference at Busch Stadium to introduce the logo for the 2017 Winter Classic, which will be played on Jan. 2 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

This will be the Blackhawks fifth outdoor game. They hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field for the 2009 Winter Classic, and hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field for the 2014 Stadium Series. Chicago also played at Washington in the 2015 Winter Classic and at Minnesota in the 2016 Stadium Series.

  1. Hope we can improve on out 1-3 record outside…and that nobody gets hurt on bad ice.
    One of these days they are going to lose one of these games to rain. Wonder what the contingency is…play indoors some other day?

  2. End the stupid Winter Classic already! With the exception of the first one at 1060 W Addison st. they have all sucked. Please put an end to this pond hockey wannabe event.

  3. Should put an exhibition game on an actual pond…. All star game on Lake Michigan by navy pier?

  4. for those complaining:

    this is what happens when you draw the best attendance, best television ratings AND sell the most jerseys EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. Oh, and you’re a Cup contender annually as well. We’re spoiled and it gets old, but the numbers don’t lie – the Chicago Blackhawks are good for business for the NHL. TV ratings weren’t great for the game vs MIN last year, but the jerseys sold well and the place sold out. At the end of the day, that’s all the league cares about.

    I’ve LONG been in favor of other markets (Denver, the Horseshoe in Columbus) getting involved, but they’ve gotta play someone people will pay to see. Is a national television audience going to line up to watch the Blues host the Stars?

  5. Does anyone know if David Rundblad will be invited to play in the Outdoor classic? You know for old times sake and the fact that he garnered valuable experience playing outdoors against Washington..
