This will be the sixth year the NHL will play a Winter Classic game. If Dallas Stars color analyst Daryl Reaugh is correct, Cowboys Stadium will be joining the list of host venues before the league gets to No. 10.
Reaugh recently said, according to The Dallas Morning News, that he thinks Jerry Jones 1.2 billion football coliseum will soon play host to what has arguably become the biggest event in hockey.
"Mark my words today, there will be a game at Cowboys Stadium, Reaugh said. "There will be a game there. I would say in the next three years there will be a game at Cowboys Stadium."
An NHL Winter Classic at Cowboys Stadium could be of interest to Jones. The Arlington venue has become known for hosting some of the biggest events in sports since the stadium opened in 2009. The Super Bowl and NBA All-Star Game have already been played there and the Final Four will be added to the list in 2014. There have also been reports that Cowboys Stadium could host the 2015 college football national championship game.
Hockey inside of a football stadium has worked in New York and Pennsylvania, but will Texas draw the same interest? Reaugh obviously think it will.

After a tough 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Friday night at Scottrade Center, the Dallas Stars head into Sunday night's Pacific Division tilt with the reigning NHL Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings in need of a nice bounce back performance at Staples Center. And if Dallas' history against the Kings this season is any indication, they could very well get it.
During Friday night's Blues game against the Dallas Stars, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect was finally captured. A message was placed on the scoreboard informing the crowd of this development which led to a spontaneous powerful "USA, USA, USA" chant throughout the arena.
It's always fun to watch pride in one's country on full display.
