If reports are true, the NHL could be primed to bring it’s Stadium Series to New Jersey next winter. According to multiple reports, and first reported by David Pagnotta of the Fourth Period, the New Jersey Devils are expected to host the Philadelphia Flyers at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford next February.
The other match-up at MetLife Stadium next February will be the New York Islanders against the New York Rangers.
I’m told the NHL is going to host 2 Stadium Series games next season in February 2024 at MetLife Stadium on back-to-back days involving 4 teams: Devils/Flyers and Isles/Rangers— David Pagnotta (@TheFourthPeriod) May 23, 2023
Neither the Rangers nor the Islanders have made a formal announcement. The Devils haven’t posted anything formal on social media at this point.
Should these two games happen, the Devils will be the host team vs. Philly (obviously), while the Islanders are believed to be designated the “home team” against the Blue Shirts.
The last time the three local teams appeared in the Stadium Series was back in 2014 when the Rangers hosted both the Devils and Islanders in separate games at Yankee Stadium, with the Blue Shirts coming out victorious both times.
As of right now, it is confirmed that the Outdoor games for next season will include the 2023 Heritage Classic between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames for October 23. The Seattle Kraken and Las Vegas Golden Knights will meet up in Seattle for the Winter Classic on January 1, 2024.
The formal schedule doesn’t come out until the summer.
