The NHL is cancelling the 2013 Winter Classic.
The league has called off the annual outdoor game due to the ongoing labor stalemate. The Detroit Red Wings were scheduled to play the Toronto Maple Leafs Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium. This would have been the sixth Winter Classic. The first one was played at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2008 featuring the Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins.
NHL owners and players remain without a collective bargaining agreement. Regular-season games through Nov. 30 have already been cancelled.
