The NHL has postponed the 2021 Winter Classic and All-Star Game "due to the ongoing uncertainty resulting from the coronavirus," the league announced in a statement on Thursday.

The Winter Classic was scheduled to be played at Target Field in Minneapolis on New Year's Day, featuring the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues. The Florida Panthers were scheduled to host All-Star Weekend on Jan. 29-30. The league said it intends to return to both Minnesota and Florida for the signature events "in the near future."
