Twenty years after hosting the NHL’s inaugural outdoor game, the Edmonton Oilers will be back hosting the 2023 installment of the heritage classic.

There is no set date or opponent at this point. All that is known is that the game will be played in October 2023 in Edmonton. Although, it seems the most likely opponent would be the Calgary Flames. I think most fans of the Alberta teams are drooling at the thought of that, and I know I am.

The Oilers have not played an outdoor game since the 2016 Heritage Classic against the Winnipeg Jets. Edmonton went on to win the game 3-0, with all the goals coming in the 2nd period from Darnell Nurse and former Oilers Zack Kassian and Mark Letestu.

The Recorded attendance the last time a game was hosted at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium was 57,167 in what was -30C with the windchill. Come next October, you can expect two things, warmer weather, and a sold-out crowd.
