Citizens Bank Park to host 2012 NHL Winter Classic; Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers

It was announced today that the Citizens Bank Park will host the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on January 2nd, 2012 at 1 pm. The Philadelphia Flyers will play host to division rivals the New York Rangers. This is the 5th annual staging of the Winter Classic, where obviously the game is played outdoors.

"The NHL Winter Classic is arguably the biggest game played during the NHL's regular season and it is a wonderful platform to feature our great sport to millions of worldwide viewers," said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman and Philadelphia Flyers founder Ed Snider. "It's an honor for the Philadelphia Flyers to serve as ambassadors for the NHL. We look forward to hosting the Winter Classic in Philadelphia and showcasing our great city to hockey fans throughout North America."

“This is a tremendous honor to once again be participating in this historic event, and what makes it even more special is to be playing the game in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “I know our fans will make this one of the most celebrated Winter Classics ever. We look forward to extending the Philadelphia-New York rivalry when we face-off against the Rangers at Citizens Bank Park.”

This won't be the only game being played on the rink set up on the baseball diamond. Philadelphia Flyers Alumni will meet the New York Rangers Alumni on Saturday, December 31 at 1 p.m. and the Adirondack Phantoms, the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, will host the Hershey Bears at Citizens Bank Park on Friday, January 6 at 7 p.m.

There will most certainly be many other events planned to go alongside the game around the city as well that whole week.

Hockey at CBP? That will be quite a different experience for sure.
