NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL announced the Toronto Maple Leafs will play host to the Detroit Red Wings in the Centennial Classic on New Year’s Day to celebrate the league’s 100th anniversary.

The outdoor game will take place at BMO Field, home of Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC and the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts. It’s a rematch of the 2014 Winter Classic, which was held at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

The Centennial Classic is expected to be part of a vast schedule of outdoor games for the 2016-17 season. The Winnipeg Jets will host the Edmonton Oilers in the Heritage Classic on Oct. 23 with other outdoor games expected to be announced soon.
