The LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks will meet at Dodgers Stadium (photo made using Fotor.com) Just like Tupac, the NHL and Coors Light are going to show the West Coast some “California Love”. As per NHL.com  Commissioner Gary Bettman has announced that the Los Angeles  Kings and Anaheim Ducks will meet outside in Dodgers Stadium on January 25th 2014. This is the second game announced in the series with the first being the Penguins and Blackhawks and Soldier Field in Chicago on March 1st of the same year.   Dodger’s Stadium, which opened in 1962, will be holding its first ever hockey game in the illustrious history of the Dodgers Stadium, the site of the Kings/Ducks outdoor game (courtesy of baseball-statistics.com) ballpark. Commissioner Bettman said at a press conference that this game will bring the game of hockey in Southern California and the League’s Outdoor games “to bold new heights.” Kings President of Business Operations Luc Robitaille, who had played in LA on three separate occasions is proud to be apart of the event. ”This will be a sporting event like no other that has ever been seen in Southern California…” The Kings/Ducks rivalry dates all the way back to 1993 when the Anaheim Mighty Ducks (as they were called) joined the league just 80 miles south of the City of Angels. Since then, both teams have been crowned Stanley Cup champions (Anaheim in 07 , and LA last season). The Kings, however, are no strangers to games outside. Along with the New York Rangers, the Kings played in the very first outdoor game in the NHL; an exhibition game in Las Vegas in 1991.
