Best-on-best international hockey is returning in February 2025 for the first time since the 2014 Winter Olympics and we finally have details on the NHL's event.

In a post on social media on Saturday evening, the National Hockey League announced that the 2025 4 Nations Face-Off will be played at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec and TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts from February 12th to 20th, 2025.
As the National Hockey League announced back in February, the tournament will feature Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States. This move has irked players from other nations, including David Pastrnak of Czechia and Leon Draisaitl of Germany, but thankfully for hockey fans, we should see them at the 2026 Winter Olympics AND the expected 2028 World Cup of Hockey.
Also during today's announcement, the National Hockey League revealed the schedule for the event. Four preliminary round games will be held in Montreal, while two others, as well as the Final, will be played in Boston. Each of the four participating nations will face each other once in the preliminary round, with the top two teams advancing to the Final, which is set for February 20th.
Let's take a look at the schedule for the 2024 4 Nations Face-Off:
- Canada vs Sweden (February 12th @ 8pm ET).
- USA vs Finland (February 13th @ 8pm ET).
- Finland vs Sweden (February 15th @ 1pm ET).
- USA vs Canada (February 15th @ 8pm ET).
- Canada vs Finland (February 17th @ 1pm ET).
- Sweden vs USA (February 17th @ 8pm ET).
- Championship Game (February 20th @ 8pm ET).
According to TSN's Chris Johnston, Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States will each announce the first six players on their 4 Nations Face-Off rosters on June 28th, which is the first night of the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.
"The teams involved in next year's 4 Nations Face-Off -- USA, Canada, Sweden and Finland -- will name their initial six players on June 28." Johnston said.

The Vancouver Canucks could be well represented at the event, with Elias Pettersson a good bet to play for Sweden, while Thatcher Demko, Brock Boeser, Quinn Hughes and J.T. Miller all options for the United States.
