The Los Angeles Kings have released their 2011 Preseason Schedule, so you can start making your plans today! As usual, they’ll play a group of teams from their own division, including Colorado, Anaheim and Phoenix twice each. It’s disappointing that there isn’t a bit more diversity, but it’s also understandable from a scheduling perspective. No reason to exhaust the team with a travel heavy preseason schedule anyway.
So what’s the schedule look like for next season?
Wednesday, Sept. 22 — at Colorado, 6 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 23 — at Phoenix, 7:05 p.m. (split squad)
Thursday, Sept. 23 — vs. Phoenix at Staples Center, 7:30 p.m. (split squad)
Tuesday, Sept. 28 — vs. Anaheim at Staples Center, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 2 — vs. Colorado in Las Vegas, 6 p.m.
Sunday, Oct. 3 — at Anaheim, 5 p.m.
Obviously the two games against Phoenix are of the infamous “split squad” variety, which is always an interesting set of games. The opener against Colorado will be an exciting chance to get a first look at the squad, and then of course there’s always the Frozen Fury. What game are you looking forward to? Heading to Vegas this year?
