Joe Juneau to Play in First-Ever Regular Season NHL Game to be Played Outdoors

The Canadian Press is reporting that the Montreal Canadiens will play the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night in a game that will take place outdoors. The game, referred to as the Molson Canadian Heritage Classic will take place at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

The article, which appeared in the Toronto Star on Wednesday, quoted Joe Juneau '91 extensively. Regarding the idea of playing outdoors:

"It's going to feel a little awkward," said Juneau, a native of Pont-Rouge, Quebec. "If it feels great, perfect. It's going to be like the atmosphere of going there and having fun so you kind of wish it would be pre-season game. We'll have to find a way to look at it as a big game."

According to NHL.com, the game will be broadcast live on CBC in Canada from coast-to-coast, but it will only be available in the U.S. via the NHL Center Ice Package.
