Hockey in Dodger Stadium? David Pagnotta at The Fourth Period reports that the NHL is close to announcing the Kings hosting an outdoor game at Dodger Stadium for the 2013-14 season. Rather than be a part of the Winter Classic which is set for the Big House between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs on New Years Day, it will be a part of Hockey Day in America sometime in February. Pagnotta also reports that Yankee Stadium will also host a New York Rangers game that day.
Helene Elliott of the LA Times is reporting that the game would be scheduled for Jan. 25, 2014. Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten would not comment.
For the doubters, the Kings hosted the NHL's first official outdoor game on Sept. 27, 1991 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The air temperature at puck drop was 85 degrees and went as high as 95 degrees, yet the ice held up well.
