NHL axes 2013 Winter Classic

The NHL has canceled the 2013 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium.

The Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs were scheduled to go head to head in the New Year's Day game in Ann Arbor.

Also canceled is the Hockeytown Festival at Comerica Park.

The owners and the players have been locked in a contract dispute for the past several months.

Last week, the NHL canceled all of the November games. Ticket refunds are available on the NHL website.
