The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading outdoors (again).
The NHL announced on Wednesday evening that the Penguins will make the trip to Fenway Park next January to take on the Boston Bruins in the 2023 Winter Classic.
The game will take place on Jan. 2, 2023, in Boston with Discover as the title sponsor for the second straight year.
The Penguins are no strangers to braving the elements, with today's announcement setting the stage for the team's sixth outdoor game in franchise history, playing host to the event on two occasions: the 2011 Winter Classic versus the Washington Capitals, and the 2017 Stadium Series versus the Philadelphia Flyers, both at Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In their five games leading up to next January's matchup, the Penguins have racked up a 2-2-1 record, compared to the Bruins' 3-1-0 record in their four outdoor games during that span.
The 2023 Winter Classic will also mark the 15-year anniversary of the event, which the Penguins took part in, with the NHL first holding the Winter Classic in Buffalo, New York at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the Buffalo Bills, in 2008.
