Michigan Stadium will host the NHL's Winter Classic next year
Professional hockey is coming to Ann Arbor after all.
The National Hockey League announced today that the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings will play next year at Michigan Stadium.
The NHL's Winter Classic was scheduled to be played in Ann Arbor this past January. But the game was canceled due to a contract dispute between team owners and the players.
When this year's event was canceled, the league had said it would schedule the next Winter Classic at the stadium, which holds more than 100,000 people.
Also, as originally planned, a sheet of ice will also be placed at Comerica Park, where two alumni games, American Hockey League, college, high school and youth games will be held in the two weeks leading up to New Year's Day.
