The National Hockey League is bringing an outdoor game to Saskatchewan later this year.

The NHL announced during Tuesday's Winter Classic that Mosaic Stadium in Regina will play host to the 2019 Heritage Classic between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets on Saturday, Oct. 26.

This will be the first-ever NHL regular-season game played in Regina after the city has hosted a number of pre-season games in recent years.

The 33,000-seat stadium, which is home to the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders, was scheduled to host an outdoor game between the Moose Jaw Warriors and Regina Pats last year, but the game was moved indoors due to poor ticket sales.

The Regina Leader-Post reported on Tuesday that the Pats have expressed interest in hosting a WHL game as part of this year's event.

The Riders have three consecutive home games scheduled at the end of October, which will allow for the setup and teardown of the arena.

This will be the fifth instalment of the Heritage Classic. The Jets lost 3-0 to the Edmonton Oilers in the 2016 edition of the game at Investors Group Field. Calgary hosted the 2011 Heritage Classic, beating the Montreal Canadiens 4-0 at McMahon Stadium.

Ticket details for the 2019 Heritage Classic are expected to be released in the next few weeks.
