The Sabres will play the Maple Leafs’ opponents in Hamilton, Ont. At Tim Hortons Field, the Canadien Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
This is the first time that the Heritage Classic involves a non-Canadian team and the first appearance of The Maple Leafs in the event. Toronto was previously a participant in the Winter Classic, playing in the New Year’s Day event in 2017, and an NHL Centennial Classic in 2017, an outdoor match to celebrate 100 years since the start of NHL. Buffalo took part in the inaugural Winter Classic in 2008 and the same game in 2018.
Sparks are bound to be flying in the frigid Ontario weather. Here’s everything you should know in advance for this year’s Heritage Classic.
