New York, NY (Sports Network) - The National Hockey League announced on
Monday that the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series will make a visit to Los
Angeles for an outdoor contest at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25, 2014.
The league's 2012 champion Los Angeles Kings will play host to the Anaheim
Ducks in a regular season tilt in the first outdoor NHL game played in the
U.S. west of the Mississippi River, the southern-most outdoor NHL contest and
first-ever outdoor game played in the Golden State.
"With their meeting in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, the Ducks and
the Kings will write the next chapter in the exciting story of NHL hockey in
Southern California," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. "At a venue that
represents so much glorious sports history, this match-up of Stanley Cup
champions will raise our outdoor initiatives to bold new heights. We know the
game will be a treat for our fans, and we thank the Ducks, the Kings, Coors
Light, Dodger Stadium and the Los Angeles Dodgers for bringing it to life."
It will be the second time that the Kings have laced up the skates
outdoors, after the team played an exhibition contest versus the New York
Rangers in the parking lot of Caesars Palace at Las Vegas on Sept. 27, 1991.
