Wings, Leafs to play ’13 Winter Classic at Big House – 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic – Maple Leafs vs. Red Wings

DETROIT — The NHL’s Winter Classic has grown bigger each season of its five-year existence. It’s only fitting that the next stop for the Jan. 1 outdoor game will be at Michigan Stadium, known by many as “The Big House.”

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Thursday morning the 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic — between Original Six rivals Detroit and Toronto — will be played at the home of the University of Michigan’s football team in Ann Arbor.

“These two Original Six rivals will take the Winter Classic to a new record-setting level,” Bettman said in announcing the game.

Bettman made the announcement at Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, which will host the Hockeytown Winter Festival, a week-long celebration of the game at all levels.
