NHL looking to grow outside hockey games
The NHL has only just begun its great outdoor experiment.
With the fifth installment of the Winter Classic game set to be played between the Rangers and Flyers at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park on Monday, NHL chief operating officer John Collins continues to dream big about what lies beyond it.
Among his goals is seeing the game make more of an impact nationally. Even though all of the league’s outdoor games to date have been a big hit on the local level, Collins sees plenty of room for growth.
