Weather history: A snowy Heritage Classic in 2003

Staff writers
November 24, 2012 — There are few things more Canadian than playing hockey on a frozen pond on a cold day. But it's rare that we ever get to see the pros do it.

That all changed on November 22, 2003, when 57,000 fans jammed Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton to watch the Heritage Classic.

When the puck dropped, the players and fans endured a temperature of -20C with a wind chill near minus thirty!

But nothing could cool their spirits during the coldest game in NHL history.
