Here is a press release indicating tickets went on sale:

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman recently announced the highly anticipated specifics of the 2013 Winter Classic, giving hockey fans in Michigan and Ontario reason to rejoice. TicketProcess.com has decided to give the fans even more reasons to be happy by giving them an opportunity to purchase Winter Classic tickets from now until they are all gone. Ticket Process makes several guarantees, but the long-term availability of tickets to the Winter Classic is not one of them. In short, the only way to be sure to secure 2013 Winter Classic tickets is to visit the top-ranked ticket site right now.
The annual outdoor hockey game will feature the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, January 1st. For the first time ever the event will take place at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. Otherwise known as “The Big House,” the stadium holds just over 115,000 fans, which is the most of any football stadium in all of North America. Even so, representatives from the NHL expect Winter Classic tickets to sell out very rapidly over the course of the upcoming weeks.
The concept of playing hockey outdoors in not a new one, but it has been largely unpractical in the NHL, where many teams would be playing in driving snowstorms for the majority of their home games. When isolated to one day and given a flexible start time, the game becomes less of a meteorological risk and more of a celebration of the great sport of hockey in a fun and unique format. The Big House is sure to be rocking on New Year’s Day of next year, and only a small portion of the folks that have dreams of attending the historic event in person will actually have the guts and gumption to act in time.
The Red Wings are perennial contenders in the Western Conference, and by the time the game rolls around it is likely that Mike Babcock will have his boys in contention for another Stanley Cup. Toronto also has a vast and proud fans base, and the heart of the Canadian capital is just a little over 400 miles from the stadium. Thousands of folks from north of the border will certainly be making the trip. The rosters of both squads are filled with a mixture of veterans and youthful players, and each one of them will be full of energy and adrenaline on what is sure to be a magical night. The site also offers great summer events such as tickets for baseball games and National Football League.

Ticket Process

Any one else find this odd? I've never heard of or used Ticket Process before. Is it legit? Any one buying tickets?

Tickets are available to season ticket holders now, IIRC. I do not believe there will ever be a 'public' sale of tickets. I do know face value of the tickets does not exceed $300 so the prices on that site are a ripoff, leading me to believe it's a third party/scalper.

I am not going. I will watch it on my LCD TV in HD quality, at home, where it is warm. :)

$200 a ticket for good seats? Screw that.
