Islanders rumored possibility for 2021 Winter Classic

The New York Islanders haven't played an outdoor game since 2014, but in 2021, that could change. Judd Zulgad of SKOR North indicates that the Isles are emerging as a possible opponent for the Wild at the marquee event hosted at Target Field.

There isn't a rivalry to speak of between the Islanders are Wild, on account of these teams only playing 27 times since 2001. So seeing the Isles linked here is a bit odd. But getting the Islanders on national TV, in a premier NHL event is all that matters.


The St Louis Blues seem like the best bet for an opponent to the Minnesota Wild in an outdoor game.
