There was a report last night that the NHL was considering adding additional outdoor games next season.
One of those games would reportedly be at Yankee Stadium.
The Hot Stove on CBC, had a follow up to this report.
Elliotte Friedman said “I hadn’t heard the venue before but they really want to do this.”
Glenn Healy then followed up and said, “John Collins (NHL COO) has a stadium series, he has had it for a long time. This is where hockey ops and business collide. We have had so many close calls with these outdoor games, you can do three, four, five of them.”
Then everyone on the panel agreed with the idea of them being “HUGE” revenue generators for the league and the players.
