The Chicago Blackhawks will play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a regular-season outdoor NHL® game at Soldier Field on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT, the National Hockey League announced today.
The event is part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ – a group of NHL regular-season games planned for outdoor locations during the 2013-14 season. It also marks the return of hockey at Soldier Field, most recently with this winter’s Hockey City Classic collegiate double-header with Notre Dame playing Miami (OH) University and Wisconsin taking on Minnesota.
“We are very excited to serve as a marquee venue of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, said Chicago Park District General Superintendent, Mike Kelly. This is another example of the blockbuster events hosted at Soldier Field attracting thousands while generating revenues which ultimately benefit local parks.”
