DENVER — Monday, the NHL announced the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe, a new event for the 2020/2021 season.

The event will feature two regular-season games along the shore of Lake Tahoe, North America's largest alpine lake.

The Colorado Avalanche will play the Vegas Golden Knights on Feb. 20. The Philadelphia Flyers will play the Boston Bruins on Feb. 21

Both games will be broadcast at 1 p.m. MST on NBC in the United States. Both games will be played without spectators.

The NHL said all four teams will wear their Adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey for the outdoor event. The Reverse Retro jerseys represent unique and historical moments in each club’s history while refreshing the color and design combination for an all-new presentation, the league said.

This will be the third regular-season outdoor game for the Avalanche. Colorado previously lost 5-3 loss to Detroit at Coors Field in 2016 and also lost 3-1 to Los Angles in 2020 at the Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium.

The NHL said more details on these events will be announced when they are available.
