The Winter Classic will be held in Seattle in 2024, the National Hockey League (NHL) announced just before the first puck drop for this year’s Classic at Fenway Park.
To mark the occasion, Kraken will host the Vegas Golden Knights on January 1st at T-Mobile Park, home of the Mariners.
The Kraken therefore gets its first opportunity to play outside in its second season, a privilege the Arizona Coyotes, Columbus Blue Jackets and Florida Panthers have yet to receive.
In addition to the Classic, which will be played in Boston on Monday, there will be two more away games before Seattle. The Carolina Hurricanes host the Washington Capitals at Carter-Finley Stadium on February 18. Then on October 29, the Oliers will host the Calgary Flames in Edmonton for a new edition of the Heritage Classic.
