Outdoor hockey is coming to Seattle. 

On Monday before this year's edition between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, the NHL pulled back the curtain on its plans for the upcoming 2024 Discover Winter Classic, officially announcing that the Seattle Kraken will host the Vegas Golden Knights on Jan. 1, 2024, at T-Mobile Park, home of the MLB's Seattle Mariners. 

The Kraken, of course, have never participated in an outdoor game before, with the 2022-23 season being just their second as an NHL franchise. The Golden Knights are veterans of the fresh air compared to their expansion counterparts, having already taken on the Colorado Avalanche at the 2021 NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe and ultimately losing by a score of 3-2. 

The 2024 Winter Classic will be broadcast exclusively by TNT in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada. 

Further details about the event, such as ticketing information and the game's official start time, will be revealed in the coming months. 

Last Saturday, The NHL also announced plans for the 2023 Heritage Classic. The Battle of Alberta heads outdoors as the Edmonton Oilers will host the Calgary Flames at Commonwealth Stadium on Oct. 29.
