An abundance of festivities will unfold during a special weekend in Winnipeg. A recent downtown gathering featured hundreds of fans and media witnessing current and former greats of the franchise unveil special jerseys that are going to be worn during this game. The Jets will take on the Edmonton Oilers, renewing a series that dates back to 2003, but has only been staged three times since. In the most recent affair, the Ottawa Senators beat the Vancouver Canucks by a score of 4-2 at BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia on March 2 of 2014.
The province of Manitoba is clearly proud to host the 2016 version. The alumni game will feature an array of huge names from both franchises, highlighted by Edmonton former great Wayne Gretzky.
The idea of an NHL outdoor game dates back to the 1980s, but it was not executed until it took place in the college ranks in the great state of Michigan around the turn-of-the-century. The Heritage Classic was born just a few years later, and other outdoor series have unfolded in the years since.
Will there someday be a day in which a franchise plays all of their home games outdoors? The idea is plenty sexy. But if a franchise can be rewarded to the great city of Las Vegas, Nevada and still have a roof over their heads, one can only wonder if it is ever actually going to become a reality.
