Reports:NHL adds 5 outdoor games in 2014, including Heritage Classic in Vancouver

The NHL is going to add five more outdoor games to its 2014 schedule, according to multiple media reports on Tuesday.

The Winter Classic between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings at Ann Arbour's Michigan Stadium had already been announced for Jan. 1 2014.

TSN and ESPN are both reporting that five more outdoor games have been added to the 2013-14 season, with several other outlets confirming individual games.

The additional five games include the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings playing at Dodger Stadium.

Hockey will go up against football twice, as the New York Rangers will face both the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils at Yankee Stadium the same week as the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLVIII is to be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

After the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, there will be two more outdoor games: the Pittsburgh Penguins will visit the Chicago Blackhawks and the Heritage Classic will return as the Ottawa Senators face the Vancouver Canucks at B.C. Place.
