New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) - The NHL confirmed and announced Saturday the league's official outdoor schedule for the 2015-2016 season.

It will begin with the Boston Bruins hosting their second Winter Classic this time at the Gillette Stadium facing the Montreal Canadiens on January 1.

Boston hosted its first Winter Classic in 2010 at Fenway Park beating the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I think it's definitely something great for the city, but also for us as players," Bruins center Patrice Bergeron stated.

"I had a chance to be part of the Winter Classic in 2010. It was a great experience," he added.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman believes reliving the rivalry between the teams will be memorable.

There are also two other outdoor games in the schedule which will be featured in the Stadium Series games of the NHL.

The first will be on February 21 as the Minnesota Wild host the Chicago Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium.

"It's a great day for our organization. It is a great day for the State of Hockey," Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said.

He added, "Everyone knows we've been pursuing an outdoor game for a while, and it is a great day to finally be able to announce we're hosting one."

The Blackhawks will play in their fourth outdoor game and forward Patrick Kane believes their competitive rivalry with Minnesota is flourishing.

The next Stadium Series game will be on February 27 with the Colorado Avalanche hosting the Detroit Red Wings.
