LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings, the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions, today announced their preseason schedule for the 2012-13 NHL season. The Kings are currently scheduled to play seven preseason games -- including two at STAPLES Center on September 24 versus the Phoenix Coyotes and October 8 versus the New York Rangers.

In addition to the two home games at STAPLES Center, the Kings will host the Colorado Avalanche at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on September 29 and the Ducks at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario on October 6.

The Kings travel to Phoenix on September 24 (as part of a split-squad game), to Colorado on September 26 and to Anaheim on October 1.

Tickets for the two Kings preseason games at STAPLES Center are scheduled to go on sale later this summer. Tickets are currently on sale for the games in Las Vegas and in Ontario.

For all Kings ticket information, call 1-888-KINGS-LA (1-888-54647-52) and visit LAKings.com.

normal stuff with the exception of the game against the Rangers. I assume this means NY will start the season out west? It seems odd to have them play a West coast game as their last preseason game.

Also it seems like October 8th is a late end to the preseason...

Noticed that too. My guess is the season will start that week for teams playing over in Europe and the first games in North America will be played shortly after those games. It is unusual as I am used to seeing the Kings open their season around the first or second week of October.

I thought that there wasn't gonna be a European tour for any NHL team next season.

I don't know if 2 games against phoenix is a very good idea. Better dress Westgarth in one and Clifford in the other.

Wasn't aware the NHL won't be sending teams to Europe this year. If that is the case, then it makes the late start to the season rather inexplicable. But I'm not going to complain, the later start may benefit the Kings.

Wow, they are starting late this season.

FF is going to have more minor league players than usual.

I am guessing the late start is to give a little more time to get a new CBA.

Nobody is going to Europe next season. As long as there isn't a lockout, anyone can win the cup next season.

I made a thread about the lockout earlier this past season and from the replies I read, no one was worried about it. Now we should be?

Seeing how they are actually about to start negotiating the CBA pretty soon, I do not foresee another lockout occurring.

Interesting.Unless the NYR are starting the season out west, seems like a wasted trip

I like that the Kings only leave California for one pre-season game, and that's for Frozen Fury in Vegas. They'll get plenty of rest before the start of the season, which I expect to start at home. Guess we'll find out tomorrow morning.

Oh yes, missed that one. This pre-season schedule is quite generous for the Kings. Hoping they don't hit the road till the 2nd/3rd week of the season.

Mckenzie thinks otherwise. I usually ignore pundits, but it's hard to argue with Bob, he's usually right.

The TV schedule hasn't been released yet. That'll come at another date.
