The Winter Classic will take place in Seattle in 2024, the National Hockey League (NHL) announced moments before the opening puck drop for this year's Classic at Fenway Park.
For the occasion, the Kraken will host the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Park, home of the Mariners, on January 1st.
The Kraken will therefore obtain a first opportunity to play outside in its second season of existence, a privilege that the Arizona Coyotes, the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Florida Panthers have still not obtained.
In addition to the Classic held in Boston on Monday, two other away games will take place before Seattle. On February 18, the Carolina Hurricanes will host the Washington Capitals at Carter-Finley Stadium. Then, on October 29, the Oliers will host the Calgary Flames in Edmonton for a new edition of the Heritage Classic.
