LINKED: NHL looking at holding outdoor game in other cities


NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says the league is considering cities other than Ottawa to host an outdoor game to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

The NHL and Ottawa Senators had wanted to hold the game on Parliament Hill, but that idea was shut down by Canadian Heritage, citing security and logistics challenges.

Although politicians like Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Mathieu Fleury have suggested Lansdowne Park as an alternative, Bettman says the Senators haven’t shown interest in other venues.
