Boston and Montreal were named host cities for the NHL's 4 Nations Face-Off next season, the league announced Saturday.

Both locations will host round-robin games before the one-game final is played at TD Garden.

The 4 Nations Face-Off will consist of seven total games between Canada, Finland, Sweden, and the United States from Feb. 12-20, 2025.

Here's the full schedule:

Each country will play three round-robin games. Teams will earn three points for a regulation win, two for an overtime or shootout victory, one in an overtime or shootout loss, and zero for a regulation loss. The two nations with the most points advance to the single-game final.

Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is at the helm for Team Canada, while Minnesota Wild GM Bill Guerin will handle roster-building duties for the U.S.

The first six players from each roster are expected to be announced June 28.

The 4 Nations Face-Off is the first best-on-best tournament since the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. It's the first with Canada and the United States at full strength since the 2014 Olympics.
