Kings at Dodger Stadium in 2013-2014 - Done Deal
 
https://twitter.com/walsha/status/320924752090890240

"As a few people have reported recently, including @TheFourthPeriod, there will be an outdoor game in Los Angeles next season. Deal is done."

Game will likely be one of two outdoor game doubleheaders as part of Hockey Day in America (the other likely being in NYC)

Finally!

Telos 04-07-2013 11:05 AM

Wow, unexpected. It is easily possible, regardless if the ice is crappy (shouldn't be any different from any other Kings game at Staples :sarcasm: ). Didn't expect Bettman to sign off on it though. ****, I am probably going to have to drive down for this.

Reclamation Project 04-07-2013 11:11 AM

Holy ****! YES!!!

Shellz 04-07-2013 11:13 AM

Oh my ****ing god yes.

Kingler 04-07-2013 11:21 AM

i for one don't like this. The ice will most likely be crappy and I don't want our players going 100% on those kind of surface. Could end up being a very very bad day

Like when Kopitar hurt his leg in that outdoor game? Oh wait...

An outdoor game in LA would probably have better ice than Staples. The best of the best will be creating the ice surface.

I would definitely fly out to LA for this game.

If they can do an outdoor game in Las Vegas, they can do one in Los Angeles two decades later.

I so wanna go to this.

What do you think the over/under will be on the main boards when this news is posted before we get the typical:

"hurr durr it's gonna be 90 degrees outside. hurr durr no one will care hurr"

posts?

I say 3 posts.

bobafettish* 04-07-2013 11:35 AM

so it's not the winter classic?

kingsboy11 04-07-2013 11:36 AM

I so want to go to this. I've been wanting one in LA for a long time.

Reclamation Project 04-07-2013 11:38 AM

They should call it the Great So Cal Winter Classic! :sarcasm:

No, sounds like it will be a Heritage game. There will be the Winter Classic between the Leafs and Wings, and then there will be two heritage games, one in LA and one in NY. The Kings will likely be wearing retro jerseys, depending on the opponent, likely purple and gold I would assume.

TwzKing 04-07-2013 11:44 AM

We better get the HBO deal too. I would kill for that more then the actual outdoor game.

Exactly...

Perhaps it durable but the problem with it all is that once the ticket are sold the pressure to put on the show will be tremendous. If the ice is borderline playable, they will make the players play it

this is not...oh it doesn't look too safe...lets postpone it.

I said exactly this to a friend of mine today. The ice is always really bad at these outdoor games. They are just a massive money grab.

Sadly they probably won't, which really sucks because that is one of my favorite parts about the Winter Classic. But still happy they are playing this game, was hoping for the Rose Bowl, but Dodger Stadium is pretty iconic too.

Happy they reached a compromise, outdoor games can be in any temperature on hockey day in America, while the Winter Classic will keep it's winter charm. Everyone is happy.

Vamos Rafa 04-07-2013 12:17 PM

Wonder if they'll replace the Dodger stuff in the team stores with Kings stuff.

And obviously a lot of fun.

It won't be a winter classic. HBO is for the winter classic, Detroit and Toronto is confirmed. This will hockey day in America.

I would have loved seeing the kings in a 24/7 show.

theMajor 04-07-2013 12:29 PM

i dont know how they are going to keep the ice cold enough but i dont really care. this is awesome!! :handclap::yo:

BigKing 04-07-2013 12:34 PM

Can you tailgate in the Dodger Stadium parking lot?

Dooney 04-07-2013 12:54 PM

Yes. Yes. Yes. Can not Wait!
