NHL Planning Outdoor Hockey Games at Lake Tahoe (Feb. 20-21)
Thanks to The Athletic for letting us know the details of the NHL’s plans to build a pop-up ice rink for two pro hockey games on the shore of Lake Tahoe in February 2021 for an “Outdoor Weekend” showcase.
The NHL is planning to build its own rink on a golf course at Edgewood Tahoe Resort in Stateline, Nevada on the Eastern shore of the Lake Tahoe just over the border from South Lake Tahoe.
The games are scheduled to be Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights on February 20, and the Boston Bruins vs. Philadelphia Flyers on February 21.
According to Sportsnet, there will be no fans in attendance and the rink will be built near the 16th, 17th and 18th holes of the golf course.
