Coors Field closes in on hosting outdoor NHL game, says Rockies owner

Published Add your comment

The Colorado Avalanches' Coors Field could be set to host an NHL hockey game in the near future. 

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort revealed to fans on Twitter than discussions have taken place:

"We have been in discussions with the NHL and the Avalanche and hopefully we will have an outdoor hockey game at Coors Field," he told social media during a scheduled chat.

The NHL Stadium Series has previously hosted games at Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium in the past month.

The Rockies may also have an advantage in that Coors, the sponsor of the MLB stadium proposed as the venue, is also the sponsor of the Stadium Series and thus are very open to the idea of a Denver fixture:

"It would be special no doubt.

"Again, the heritage of the brand, being from the Rocky Mountains, we'd welcome that," said Adam Dettman, Coors Director of Sports & Entertainment Marketing recently.

The outdoor games have so far proved a huge success with fans, and they are scheduled to continue for a couple of years at least.

With Denver looking like a likely venue in the near future.
