NEW YORK, N.Y. - Vancouver will become the third Canadian city to host a regular-season NHL game outdoors when the Canucks welcome the Ottawa Senators to BC Place next season in the 2014 Heritage Classic.

Edmonton hosted Montreal in the original Heritage Classic in 2003 in the NHL's first ever outdoor regular-season game. Calgary welcomed the Canadiens in the 2011 edition.

The 2014 game in Vancouver take place March 2 and will be the first played in a retractable-roof facility.

"With one of the world's great facilities as the setting, and one of the world's most scenic cities as the backdrop, the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic at BC Place in Vancouver will honour hockey's Canadian heritage," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. "With the excitement, the entertainment, the competitiveness and the fun of this game, the Canucks and Senators will create special memories for hockey fans everywhere."

It's the sixth outdoor game to be confirmed for next season.
