The NHL is going full swing with outdoor games for this upcoming season. Their “Stadium Series” of having six games has been known for a awhile, but yesterday they held a press conference at Yankee stadium along with members of the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils.
Two games will be played at Yankee Stadium, with the Rangers taking part in both.
Some fans think the NHL is watering down the outdoor games by hosting six in one season, but the NHL feels they are giving fans what they want.
“If you’re looking at it on a national basis, obviously we’re doing more,” commissioner Gary Bettman said Thursday at Yankee Stadium, which will host two games in January. “But for teams and markets that want to host this (event), for fans that want to attend, we can’t do enough of them.”
Four games will be played in January, with two games going in March. Games will be played at Los Angeles’

“The reason we’re doing more outdoor games is really what it’s now doing locally,” Bettman said. “This is an incomparable event and what happens is fans get connected to the game in ways they never imagined, we get new fans who, for the first time, will come and be a part of this. This is a fan-oriented, fan-driven event, and that’s why we’re doing so many games so we can bring it to more fans.”
“Fans love attending this event, the demand that we’re hearing and feeling from our teams and markets and venues wanting to host this game is overwhelming,” Bettman said. “So if you’re actually getting an opportunity to attend this game, you don’t think we’re doing too many of them.”
There are some people who believe the NHL is hosting six games to make up for some of the money lost from the lockout last season. These outdoor games will all likely sell out and bring a ton of money for the team and NHL in general.
