NHL to announce site of 2013 Winter Classic on Thursday

According to an official NHL release, a major announcement will be made on Thursday at two Detroit area locations.

The festivities will get underway at the Tiger Club at Comerica Park, in Detroit at 10:30 EST and will be televised live across North America by NHL Network and streamed live on NHL.com.

The group will then caravan by bus to Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor for more information at 1:15 EST.

Speculation is widespread that the Winter Classic events will be held at both venues with the primary game being held at Michigan's "Big House" on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 where attendance in excess of the stadium's 109,901 is anticipated, breaking the all-time record for folks at a hockey game.

The Detroit Red Wings are expected to host the Toronto Maple Leafs in a traditional "original six" match-up.

Other events, including the Alumni Game, an AHL game, college games, and numerous other events will be held in Downtown Detroit at Comerica Park.
