The NHL is considering adding a Winter Classic outdoor game for Canadian teams as soon as next season.
So far the league's annual outdoor game on New Year's Day has matched up teams from American cities with strong hockey followings. Adding Canadian teams was considered for 2010 but didn't happen.
"It's something we're going to look at for next season," Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday. "We'll see if we can make that happen."
The Bruins and Flyers are scheduled to play Jan. 1 at Fenway Park in Boston in the third Classic.
Bettman said all six Canadian teams have expressed interest in hosting or playing in the game.
