The Avalanche's schedule for the 2014-15 season will be released next month, but one contest Avs fans will not see listed is an outdoor game at Coors Field.

NHL sources said Denver will not get an outdoor game this coming season, despite heavy previous speculation it would. The good news: Denver is likely to get one in 2015-16, the sources said.

If Denver had hosted an outdoor game this winter, it would have been part of the NHL's Coors Light Stadium Series, as the 2015 Winter Classic will be played in Washington, most likely at Nationals Park.

Whether Denver will host the Winter Classic or a Stadium Series game has yet to be determined.
