Heritage Classic festivities roll out
The second NHL Heritage Classic, featuring the Montreal Canadiens and the Calgary Flames outdoors at McMahon Stadium, is just under three weeks away.
The league kicked off it's festivities on Tuesday, as the world's largest mobile rink refridgeration unit made it's first stop in Toronto. NHL Vice President of Hockey Operations, and former player, Kris King was on hand as the rig made a stop at a local Canadian Tire Store.
The tour will make stops at Canadian Tire stores in Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon, before arriving in Calgary for the rink build on February 9. There will be fan giveaways and promotions as the tour makes it's stops.
