NHL to announce Winter Classic at Fenway Park on July 15

As first reported on WEEI.com last night, the NHL will be traveling to Fenway Park on Wednesday July 15 to announce the storied Boston ballpark as the next setting for the NHL Winter Classic in 2009-10. The announcement is set to take place at 2 p.m. at the Fens, and WEEI.com also first reported that the New Year's Day game will pit the Boston Bruins against the Philadelphia Flyers. Friday morning's press release indicated only that the NHL will have a "major announcement" to make at Fenway next week, but multiple sources have already indicated to WEEI.com that it will be the official reveal for next season's Winter Classic at the Fens -- along with at least one other outdoor hockey involving BU and BC to take place at Fenway Park in January.
