Flyers logoIt’s been rumored for months but it now looks like the NHL is finally ready to officially announce that the Flyers will be hosting the New York Rangers in the 2012 Winter Classic.

A source tells the Daily News that an announcement is expected next week.

With the release of the NHL on NBC schedule showing a 1:00pm Flyers vs Rangers matchup on January 2, 2012, it’s pretty much hiding in plain sight.

Originally thought to be played at the Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field, due to scheduling concerns the location has been shifted to the Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park.  Once the Phillies confirm the agreement the NHL should make things official.

Expect ticket availability to be revealed along with the NHL’s overdue proclamation.
