The 2014 NHL Heritage Classic was an outdoor regular season National Hockey League (NHL) game held indoor, part of the Heritage Classic series of outdoor NHL ice hockey games in Canada. It took place on March 2, 2014, in BC Place, with the Ottawa Senators facing off against home team Vancouver Canucks.[1] It is the first "outdoor" game to be played in what technically is an indoor stadium, albeit one of a larger capacity than a typical NHL arena; BC Place is a retractable roof venue, and it is unknown if the stadium has the capabilities to keep its roof open during inclement weather (several stadiums of the type explicitly cannot be kept open in such an environment due to drainage concerns). The game was televised nationally in Canada on CBC and nationally in the United States on NBCSN.

It was announced hours before the game that the roof of BC Place would be closed for the duration of the game due to weather concerns.

The 2014 NHL Heritage Classic was also the last game to feature Roberto Luongo as a player for Vancouver.
