The NHL has never played a regular season outdoor game west of the Mississippi river, but the league will be front and center in Los Angeles when it partners with NBC Sports to take hockey to Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25.
"What a perfect combination: the Hollywood stars, the hockey stars, under the stars. It is the perfect hat trick," NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network executive producer Sam Flood told The Hollywood Reporter about the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks regular season game....
But Flood, a former college hockey captain at Williams before becoming a TV hockey powerbroker, said mixing NHL brawn with Hollywood beauty promises an event more than a league game. "[Los Angeles] is celebrity. That is the scene. That is a place you want to be seen," Flood insisted.
