Blackhawks, Penguins to Play at Soldier Field

Joel Auerbach/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Chicago Blackhawks will host the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field on March 1, 2014, the NHL announced on Wednesday.

"Our fans and our teams love outdoor games and we are thrilled the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series will present a number of these experiences to a large number of our fans in a variety of National Hockey League markets," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.

"The Chicago game, at Soldier Field, will be a match-up of two recent Stanley Cup champions at a landmark stadium. We thank the Blackhawks and Penguins, Coors Light, Soldier Field and everyone involved in what will be a memorable, exciting and fun event," Bettman continued.

The game at Soldier Field will be the first of many outdoor games.  The last outdoor game that Chicago participated in was in 2009 against the Penguins at Wrigley Field.
