2011 Heritage Classic

Heritage Classic

The Pioneers

Outdoor games may now be commonplace in the NHL, yet that wasn't always the case. It took a few brave souls to help get the ball rolling on a cold night in Edmonton.

Winter Wonderland

Every great idea begins with inspiration. With the Winter Classic, the NHL has the Canadiens in part to thank.

The Outsiders

Having watched the 2011 Heritage Classic in person or on television is one thing, being able to go behind the scenes is another. Complete with the temperature including windchill for any outdoor photo, go back and relive the event through the players' eyes.

Parting Shots

There's cold and there's cold. Leave it to hockey players to test the physical limits the body can handle at extreme temperatures. We'll let the guys close out this issue by sharing their recollections on the coldest day of their lives - excluding, of course, February's Heritage Classic.
