Winter Classic at the Big House?
By QMI Agency
The NHL has all but finalized details to hold next year's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, ESPN.com reported Friday.
The league also is negotiations to construct another outdoor rink in downtown Detroit, likely at Comerica Park, where other events would be held, including perhaps a college tournament, a source said.
The league wants the matter settled by the all-star game Jan. 29.
The Jan. 1 game would be played at the University of Michigan's "Big House," about 70 km west of Detroit. It can accommodate more than 110,000 fans.
