The Blackhawks will be making a league-most fourth appearance in the annual game, which is played outdoors and will feature the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres in the 2018 tilt at Citi Field.

Chicago lost to the St. Louis Blues 4-1 in the most recent Winter Classic, which was contested in Busch Stadium. The Bruins will make a third appearance in the game.

“The Boston Bruins are excited to be playing in the 2019 Bridgestone Winter Classic against another storied Original Six franchise, the Chicago Blackhawks,” said Bruins President Cam Neely.

“The rich history of Notre Dame Stadium is well documented, and our team looks forward to playing at such an iconic venue.”
