Sabres, Rangers in 2018 Winter Classic at Citi Field

(TSX / STATS) -- The 2018 NHL Winter Classic will be played on Jan. 1, 2018, in New York at Citi Field, with the New York Rangers hosting the Buffalo Sabres, the NHL announced on Tuesday.

Both the Sabres and Rangers will be making their second appearance in the NHL's New Year's Day outdoor game. Buffalo hosted the first-ever event against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a 2-1 shootout loss, at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2008. New York defeated the Philadelphia Flyers at Citizens Bank Park at the 2012 event.

"The Winter Classic made its debut under snowy Buffalo skies in 2008, and we look forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of that landmark event by matching the Sabres with their intrastate rivals, the New York Rangers, in the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citi Field," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said.
