The Kings playoff runs, and championships are finally bringing some long overdue attention and recognition of hockey in Southern California.
“The LA Kings are honored to once again be selected to represent the National Hockey League at the 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series,” said Luc Robitaille, Kings President, Business Operations. “This event is a tremendous example of how our game continues to grow and evolve in the state of California and it will bring a great deal of exposure to sports fans throughout the region. The event at Dodger Stadium in front of 54,099 fans this past January was a historic moment for the Kings and for our fans, and our players and the entire Kings organization are looking forward to another fun and exciting game this time against our Northern California and Pacific Division rivals, the San Jose Sharks.”
VIA LA Kings PR:
“Launched last season by the NHL, the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ featured four games in 2014, all of which were played in sold out stadiums. The series started in Los Angeles with the NHL’s first outdoor game played in California, showcased the first two hockey games ever played at Yankee Stadium and concluded with the first-ever NHL game at Soldier Field.
Last season, the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® and Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ set viewership and ratings records nationally in both the U.S. and Canada as well as locally in multiple markets. The League’s six most-watched regular season games in the U.S. within the past 39 years are all outdoor games.”
“The growing excitement around NHL hockey in California, the intensity of last season’s playoff series between these teams and the state-of-the-art setting at Levi’s® Stadium will bring a thrilling new dimension to the Kings-Sharks rivalry,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We thank the Sharks, the Kings, Coors Light, the San Francisco 49ers, Levi’s® Stadium and everyone involved in producing the next episode of our Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.”
