Kings announce Frozen Fury XV at MGM Grand Las Vegas

May 1, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT


After a one-year hiatus, the Frozen Fury is back.

That was the story out of Los Angeles on Wednesday as the Kings announced the return of their annual Vegas game — well, make that “games.”

On Friday, Sept. 27, the Kings will kick off Frozen Fury XV with a game against the New York Rangers. The following day, LA will host the Colorado Avalanche, with both contests taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The Frozen Fury was first played in 1997 and has been a staple of Los Angeles’ preseason over the last 15 years.

Last year, the event (Frozen Fury 15) was canceled due to the NHL work stoppage.

This year will act as a sort of re-do, and will be the first in a new five-year contract between the Kings and MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

    I’m going to avoid the obvious joke about the Av’s just needing to stay there instead of traveling in the fall. Oh wait…guess I did it anyway.

    How about they do it at Caesar’s Palace in the parking lot again? A whole new twist on the “Fall Classic”?

      I’m ashamed that I didn’t know this happened.
