Last week, after the league and union couldn't reach an agreement, the NHL canceled all games through November. The Winter Classic, now rescheduled for Jan. 1, 2014, was supposed to feature Detroit and Toronto playing outdoors at the Big House.

The cancellation comes as a result of the rental agreement between the NHL and Michigan Stadium. If canceled by Friday, the league would only lose a $100,000 deposit; a $250,000 payment was scheduled for Friday and ultimately the league was set to pay $3 million in total for use of the stadium.
