The lockout moved their visit back a few months, but the Los Angeles Kings will still get to present the Stanley Cup to President Barack Obama in celebration of their 2011-12 triumph.
The current plan is for the Kings to go there on either March 26 or 27, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Chances are, the Kings’ visit won’t be as memorable as the Boston Bruins’ Tim Thomas-less photo op from last season. We’ll see, though.
Here’s an AP photo of Obama with the Cup:
