The Toronto Maple Leafs will reportedly host NHL All-Star Weekend and an outdoor game at Rogers Centre as part of the organization's centennial celebration in 2017, according to Ken Campbell of The Hockey News.

Campbell expects the Montreal Canadiens to serve as the opponent for the outdoor showcase.

Toronto last held an All-Star Game in 2000, and has yet to host an outdoor game as part of the NHL's outdoor series, whether it be a Winter Classic or Stadium Series.

Rogers Centre, located a few blocks from the Air Canada Centre, features a retractable roof. You know, just in case it snows. Or gets cold.
