The game will mark the return to outdoor games for the Blackhawks after not playing in one during the 2017-18 season for the first time since 2012-13. Chicago has hosted the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field and the 2014 NHL Stadium Series game at Soldier Field.
They have also played in Washington, Minnesota and St. Louis for outdoor games.
