The Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers are taking it outside.

The two New York clubs will participate in the 2018 Winter Classic to be held Jan. 1 at Citi Field, home of MLB’s New York Mets, the NHL announced Tuesday.

“With New York City as its host, the renewal of our New Year’s tradition will continue to inspire hockey memories for our clubs, our players, and our fans,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.

The Sabres participated in the inaugural Winter Classic, held in Buffalo in 2008. The Rangers took part in the 2012 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
