The Winter Classic is reportedly next on the chopping block due to the NHL lockout.
According to an ESPN report, the NHL is expected to cancel the annual outdoor game on Thursday. The Winter Classic is scheduled for Jan. 1 between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium.
The NHL has already cancelled all regular-season games through Nov. 30 as the owners and players remain without a collective bargaining agreement. No labor talks are currently scheduled.
