The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks will meet in a regular-season game at the outdoor venue of Dodger Stadium next season, the NHL announced Monday.
Temperatures may be near 80 degrees for the game at the baseball stadium when the Ducks and Kings play at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25, 2014.
The event is part of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series, in which the NHL plans to play a number of regular-season games in outdoor venues in 2013-14.
The NHL already announced another game in this series, an outdoor game at Chicago's Soldier Field, featuring the Chicago Blackhawks and the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 1, 2014.
"With their meeting in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, the Ducks and the Kings will write the next chapter in the exciting story of NHL hockey in Southern California," Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. "At a venue that represents so much glorious sports history, this match-up of Stanley Cup champions will raise our outdoor initiatives to bold new heights. We know the game will be a treat for our fans, and we thank the Ducks, the Kings, Coors Light, Dodger Stadium and the Los Angeles Dodgers for bringing it to life."
