Noah Graham’s Winter Classic photos

Los Angeles Kings photographer Noah Graham was among the photographers hired to shoot the Winter Classic yesterday at Michigan Stadium. Though the glut of his photos surrounded the pageantry and set-up of the event and not the game itself, they provide a wonderful account of the conditions of the event and the size and scope of one of the more memorable days in National Hockey League history.

A collection of photos by Noah Graham:
