The 2015 NHL Stadium Series is an outdoor regular season National Hockey League (NHL) game scheduled to be played outdoors, part of the Stadium Series of games held at football or baseball stadiums. The Los Angeles Kings will play against the San Jose Sharks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 21, 2015.[2] The game coincides with NBC Sports' "Hockey Day in America" coverage.[3]

This is the only game in the Stadium Series during the 2014–15 NHL regular season (as opposed to multiple games in 2014 and 2016). The NHL was originally reportedly looking to hold four outdoor games, including the Winter Classic.[4] Besides Levi's Stadium, other possible sites for the Stadium Series games included Coors Field (Denver),[5] Gillette Stadium (Foxborough, Massachusetts),[6] Target Field (Minneapolis),[7] Beaver Stadium (Pennsylvania State University),[8] and an as-yet-unnamed venue in the Phoenix area.[9] Denver, Minneapolis and Massachusetts are instead being considered for 2016 outdoor contests.[10]
