The NHL will host the first-ever Outdoor NWHL Women’s Classic presented by Scotiabank on Thursday at Gillette Stadium as part of the festivities for the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

Boston Pride (NWHL) vs. Les Canadiennes (CWHL) at Gillette Stadium on Dec. 31; Gates open at 1:30 p.m. ET


The abbreviated exhibition game, which will begin at 2:00 p.m. ET, will feature the Boston Pride of the newly formed National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) versus Les Canadiennes of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL).

“Two days with three Boston-Montreal rival match-ups is a great way to celebrate hockey, a new year signifies a new chapter and we look forward to sharing the ice for the first time with two professional women’s teams on the League’s biggest stage.” –  Bill Daly, NHL Deputy Commissioner
