The NHL will unveil the worst-kept secret Wednesday at Fenway Park, officially introducing the famed ballpark as the site of the 2010 Winter Classic. The Bruins will host Philadelphia Jan. 1 in the third Winter Classic.

The 2009 outdoor game took place at Wrigley Field between Chicago and Detroit. The inaugural Winter Classic was held in 2008, at Ralph Wilson Stadium between Buffalo and Pittsburgh.

Defending NCAA champion Boston University will play Boston College in an outdoor game as part of the Winter Classic. There is also discussion about making the Fenway rink available for open skates to the public.

A news conference will take place at 2 p.m. It will be simulcast on the NHL Network and streamed at www.nhl.com.
