The Kings and the MGM Grand announced a three-year contract extension to keep the preseason "Frozen Fury" in the MGM Grand Garden Arena through the 2016 season.

"This was an easy decision for the Kings to continue this great partnership," said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille in a statement. "Our fans flock to Vegas for these games and make an entire weekend out of it. This is an event that we all circle on the calendar each September."

The "Frozen Fury" started in 1997 where the Kings play a preseason game in non strike-shortened seasons usually against the Colorado Avalanche in Las Vegas. The only exceptions were in 1999 (Phoenix Coyotes) and 2001 (San Jose Sharks). No games were played in 2004 and 2012.

This weekend the Kings are hosting Frozen Fury XV where they beat the New York Rangers 4-1 last night and will host the Avs tonight. The game tonight will be aired AM 1150 KTLK.
