The Red Wings will indeed take part in another NHL outdoor game.

The league on Saturday announced outdoor games next season in Boston, Colorado and Minnesota.

The Feb. 27, 2016, game in Colorado will feature the rivalry game between the Red Wings and Avalanche at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies.

The Red Wings have appeared in two other outdoor games — playing the Chicago Blackhawks at Wrigley Field in 2009 and hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs in Ann Arbor in 2014.

The Red Wings and Avalanche had one of the best rivalries in all of sports from 1996 through 2002, before the Avalanche's fall in the standings and realignment took a big bite out of rivalry.

The Winter Classic on Jan. 1 will have the Boston Bruins play the Montreal Canadiens at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. On Feb. 21, 2016, the Wild will play host to the Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus.
