Next Saturday (Feb. 23), the Philadelphia Flyers will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins outdoors at Lincoln Financial Field as part of the 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.  An article on the Flyers website said that ice-making machines arrived at the Linc on Monday to prepare to construct the rink.

According to CBS3, construction was in full swing yesterday in South Philly.  Check out the video:

Back in November of 2017, the NHL announced that the Flyers and Penguins would be taking part in the Stadium Series during the 2018-19 season.

According to Wikipedia, the Stadium Series is one of three annual outdoor events that the NHL does each season.  The NHL Winter Classic is played on New Year's Day and the NHL Heritage Classic is played in Canada.  Next Saturday will be the 9th game in the Stadium Series, which started in 2014.  Two years ago, the Flyers and Penguins took part in the series in a game played at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
