The NHL, not the Chicago Blackhawks or Wrigley Field, will be responsible for doling out tickets to the Winter Classic II next January. So, if you want good tickets to this massive ice party, set to go on at “holy shrine” Wrigley Field, you better be either …

a. Rich
b. A season ticket holder of the Chicago Blackhawks
