2016 NHL stadium series

The 2016 NHL Stadium Series was a series of two outdoor regular season National Hockey League (NHL) games scheduled to be played during the 2015–16 NHL season.

The 2016 Stadium Series consisted of: the Minnesota Wild versus the Chicago Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium on February 21, 2016 & the Colorado Avalanche versus the Detroit Red Wings at Coors Field on February 27, 2016.

NBC aired both games in the United States with the first game at TCF Bank Stadium being part of its "Hockey Day in America" coverage.

The second game at Coors Field aired on NBC in primetime, the fourth primetime regular season game to air on NBC's broadcast network (after the 2011 NHL Winter Classic, the 2014 NHL Stadium Series game in Chicago and the February 28, 2015 game between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers) since NBC won the broadcast contract for the NHL in 2004.

In Canada, the game at TCF Bank Stadium was the first game of a tripleheader on Sportsnet (simulcast from the NBC feed) while the game at Coors Field aired as part of the Hockey Night in Canada coverage on Sportsnet.
