Winter Classic set for Michigan Stadium again

DETROIT — The Winter Classic between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings at Michigan Stadium has been reset for Jan. 1 after its cancellation this season because of the NHL lockout.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement Sunday before the Red Wings hosted the St. Louis Blues.

When the game was called off, the league said it would schedule the next Winter Classic at the more than 100,000-seat stadium in Ann Arbor.

Also, as originally planned, Comerica Park will hold a series of games in the two weeks leading to New Year’s Day. They will involve the American Hockey League, college and high school as well as alumni and youth games.

The jerseys Detroit and Toronto will wear in the Winter Classic and the ones that will be worn during the alumni games were unveiled.
