The Chicago Blackhawks are headed outside — again.

A source confirmed a report from TSN in Canada that the Hawks will face the Washington Capitals in the 2015 Winter Classic to be held New Year’s Day in Washington. The site is yet to be announced, but it is likely it will be at Nationals Park.

It will mark the third time the Hawks will participate in an outdoor game, with the first being the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field against the Detroit Red Wings. Last March, the Hawks hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series.

The NHL is expected to release the full 2014-15 regular-season schedule Sunday at 3 p.m. Central.
