Providence Bruins to play outdoor game in Connecticut

For the second straight year, the Bruins will be playing outdoors… kind of.

Howard Baldwin, chairman of Whalers Sports & Entertainment announced on Wednesday [1] that the Feb. 11 game between the Connecticut Whale (which will come into existence on Nov. 27 after the rebranding of the Hartford Wolf Pack) and the Providence Bruins will be played at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn.

The game, which will be a part of the nine-day long Whalers Hockey Fest, will be the second outdoor game in the history of the AHL. The Binghamton Senators and Syracuse Crunch played this past February at the New York State Fairgrounds.

Tickets for the Connecticut/Providence outdoor game can be purchased at www.ctwhale.com [2].
