Nationals Park during Game 3 against the Cardinals (US Presswire)
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- ESPN is reporting that the NHL 2015 Winter Classic will be held at Nationals Park (http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/10215958/washington-capitals-host-2015-winter-classic-nationals-park).
In September, it was announced that the new year's outdoor game would be hosted by the Washington Capitals, but a venue was not determined.
NHL officials have also visited RFK Stadium and FedEx Field.
Sources tell ESPN that Nats Park was selected due to scheduling issues with the Redskins and the fact that it's a relatively new venue.
