The Stadium Series is an event held by the National Hockey League (NHL) in which a regular-season hockey game is played outdoors. This event is distinct from the NHL Winter Classic and NHL Heritage Classic outdoor games, played on New Year's Day and in Canada respectively. The first Stadium Series was held in 2014 and consisted of seven teams participating in four games held in three venues. In 2015, only one game in the Stadium Series was held, while in 2016, two games were held.[1] In 2017 it consisted of only one game. One game has been announced for 2018.
