The 2018 National Hockey League (NHL) Winter Classic could be coming to Queens.

According to Newsday, plans to hold the league’s signature outdoor game at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, are close to being finalized. The outdoor game, which takes place on or around New Year’s Day, would reportedly take place between the New York Rangers and the Buffalo Sabres.

The league’s annual event, which celebrates its 10th anniversary next year, has never been held in New York City.

Yankee Stadium hosted two NHL “Stadium Series” games in Jan. 2014, where the New York Rangers played against the New Jersey Devils and the New York Islanders.

This year’s Winter Classic was held on Jan. 2 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO (home of baseball’s Cardinals), where the St. Louis Blues took on the Chicago Blackhawks.
