'The Winter Classic is shipping back to Boston. 

Speaking to the media prior to the All-Star Skills Competition on Friday night, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced that the 2023 Winter Classic will be hosted by the Boston Bruins on Jan. 1 at Fenway Park, home of the MLB's Boston Red Sox. 

This is not the first time that Fenway has played host to the NHL's marquee midseason event, having been the central site for the third-ever Winter Classic back in 2010 when the Bruins took on the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Despite the NHL having already used Fenway Park as a host stadium for an outdoor game in the past, Bettman vowed during his press conference that the historic site will indeed look different than it did 12 years ago, noting that Fenway has undergone multiple renovations in the years since the league last stopped by that will only make it better. 

While the Bruins are set to participate in their fifth outdoor game, and second at Fenway Park, next January, Bettman did not reveal who their opponent would be, hinting that an announcement will come in the near future.
