The Heritage Classic returns to the regular-season schedule after games in 2014 in Vancouver, 2011 in Calgary and 2003 in Edmonton.
Winnipeg will play an outdoor game for the first time.
The contest will be Edmonton’s second outdoors but first since hosting the first-ever NHL regular-season outdoor contest at Commonwealth Stadium in 2003.
