02:11 PM ET 04.07 | On the same date the NHL announced the return of their signature Winter Classic, reports are emerging that an additional outdoor game is in the works. According to reports, the NHL is planning for multiple outdoor games next season, with one taking place in Los Angeles. the game would be played at Dodger Stadium between the Kings and Ducks on Hockey Day in America, NBC's annual showcase for the sport across the United States. The league could potentially host a doubleheader of outdoor games on the day, with a game from the east coast at 1 p.m. ET, and the two Southern California teams playing at 4 p.m. ET. The NHL has held a Winter Classic five times before, with a sixth coming on Jan. 1, 2014 in Ann Arbor, Mich. between the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. They have also played two Heritage Classics in Canada in 2003 and 2011. The outdoor games have never come anywhere as far south as Southern California before. Previously, Philadelphia was the most southern city to host for the 2012 Winter Classic.

Not to worry. You can trust the Hollywood FX crew to create the illusion of winter even when it's not.
