Winter Classic 2014: Jersey unveiling, game announcement to come Sunday

The NHL is expected to announce the 2014 Winter Classic this Sunday at Joe Louis Arena.

The NHL is expected to announce the 2014 Winter Classic this Sunday during a media availability and unveiling at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

A league press release details the "NHL special event press conference" and jersey unveiling that will be held at the home of the Red Wings at 10:30 a.m. ET. Obviously, this leads one to believe that the league is planning to formally announce that the Winter Classic will be hosted by the Detroit Red Wings.

Due to the lockout, the 2013 Winter Classic was canceled. It was originally scheduled to be played at the University of Michigan's football stadium between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. According to multiple reports -- including a reported admission from Detroit general manager Ken Holland -- the 2014 Winter Classic will be held in the same venue, between the same teams.

In addition, the jerseys expected to be worn by both teams were believed to be leaked last month.
