True North has confirmed the Winnipeg Jets are seeking to host an outdoor NHL game in 2016.

The NHL Winter Classic game would be played at Investors Group Field, the new home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at the University of Manitoba.

True North Sports and Entertainment spokesman Scott Brown confirmed via Twitter on Saturday afternoon that Jets ownership has had discussions with the National Hockey League about hosting the game.

This season's Winter Classic was cancelled because of the NHL lockout.
