ANAHEIM DUCKS & LOS ANGELES KINGS TO OPEN
2007-2008 NHL REGULAR SEASON IN LONDON
"NHL Premiere" Series to be Played at 02 Arena;
Games Mark the Second Trip Overseas for the Ducks 

 

The Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings will open the 2007-08 NHL regular season in London, England at Europe's most state-of-the art entertainment venue, the 02 Arena. The clubs will play two contests (Saturday, Sept. 29 at 5 p.m. GMT/9 a.m. PST & Sunday, Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. GMT/9 a.m. PST), marking the first time the NHL has played a regular season game in Europe.


 

The season-opening game on Saturday will be televised locally on Fox Sports West. Sunday's contest will be aired on Versus. 

 

"This is a great honor for us, to be chosen to play in the NHL's first regular season games in Europe," said Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke. "Showcasing a great rivalry between two clubs from the Southern California market will be terrific for the NHL."

 

"Our commitment to grow the game globally has never been stronger," said NHL Deputy Commissioner, Bill Daly. "The NHL is extremely proud to be represented in London by two great hockey organizations in the Ducks and Kings, as well as to be recording NHL history at such a fantastic facility in the 02 ."

 

The Ducks are the only NHL team to have been selected by the league to play games outside North America on two occasions. The club played the Vancouver Canucks in the NHL's "Game One" series to open the 1997-98 season in Tokyo, Japan. Those contests marked the first NHL regular season games outside North America.

 

It also marks the second trip to London by the NHL, following a 1993 two-game preseason series between the Rangers and Leafs at Wembley Arena. (A complete NHL history overseas is available on media.nhl.com.)
