Earlier this evening, NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman, announed the second game of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks to be held at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25, 2014.  From NHL.com:

“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. “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.”

The league began announcing games for the upcoming season’s “Stadium Series” last week when they announced the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins to be held at Soldier Field on Mar. 1, 2014.

This will be the first event of its kind for Dodger Stadium as they have never played host to an outdoor hockey game.  It will also be a first for the Ducks who have never played an outdoor game either.  It should also prove to be interesting with Los Angeles’ temperatures as well.
