For the Los Angeles Kings, what better way to celebrate the franchise’s first Stanley Cup championship* than with an exhibition game in Las Vegas!
The Kings announced today they’ll be playing their 15th preseason game in Sin City on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
This year’s game against the Colorado Avalanche – aka Frozen Fury 15 – will be the first in a new five-year contract between the Kings and MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
The Kings played their first preseason contest at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in 1997 against Colorado.
