ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The league said 105,500 tickets have been sold for the outdoor Winter Classic today between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium. That almost doubles the average of 53,045 spectators who watched the first five Winter Classics.

A lot of snow and 10 mph wind could become a problem for the Red Wings and Maple Leafs, who enter the game tied in the Eastern Conference standings with 45 points halfway through their seasons. “Cold you can deal with,” Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader said. “But if the snow is coming down hard and it’s windy, it can be pretty tough.”

  • The Maple Leafs have signed captain
  • Dion Phaneuf
  • to a seven-year deal, keeping their 28-year-old defenseman around through the end of the 2020-21 season. Phaneuf has four goals and 11 assists this year.
  • San Jose rookie forward
  • Tomas Hertl
  • had surgery to repair damaged ligaments in his right knee. He is expected to miss more than a month.
