Winter Classic 2013: Detroit Red Wings Frontrunners To Host Game; Michigan Stadium Contacted

The 2012 NHL Winter Classic is only a few days old, but the speculation for where the 2013 game will be held has already started. The NHL just might already have it's destination in mind for the 2013 NHL Winter Classic. The current speculation is that the game will be held in Michigan at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor or at Comerica Park. Given the location, the signs point to the Detroit Red Wings as the hosting team for the game.

The NHL is in the early workings of setting up the game, but they have approached the University of Michigan about hosting the game. "We have been approached by the NHL about utilizing our facility for the 2013 Winter Classic," Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said in a statement. "There are a lot of complex circumstances that need to be ironed out before anything moves forward. We will have more to say if/when something materializes."
