An NHL team and a European team will square off next year in what the International Ice Hockey Federation hopes will become an annual exhibition series, a source told The Canadian Press on Monday.
IIHF President Rene Fasel is scheduled to make the announcement Tuesday during a news conference at the IIHF World Hockey Championship. The series will take place in September 2008.
Ideally, the IIHF would like to have the Stanley Cup champion meet a European champion but that won’t be the case for the first event.
