The Washington Capitals will be hosting the 2015 Winter Classic next season against the Chicago Blackhawks, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

McKenzie adds that while the venue for the Winter Classic in D.C. hasn't been finalized yet, the leading candidate is believed to be Nationals Park.

It will be the seventh edition of the National Hockey League's New Year's game and the second time that both teams have been participants.

The Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field in 2009, while the Capitals visited Pittsburgh's Heinz Field in 2011 in a matchup against the Penguins.

The Blackhawks also hosted the Penguins as part of the league's outdoor stadium series last season at Soldier Field.
