The National Hockey League, Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings unveiled their donation to Anaheim and Los Angeles area elementary schools today as a legacy of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series™ Los Angeles outdoor game at Dodger Stadium on January 25. The announcement was made today at the Graham Elementary School in Los Angeles, one of the 50 schools to receive street hockey equipment as part of the NHL’s, Kings’ and Ducks’ commitment to growing the sport of hockey in Southern California, combating obesity and promoting a healthy, active lifestyle.

“The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks have been instrumental in growing our game and ensuring that children throughout Southern California are provided opportunities to experience hockey and introduce physical activity into their lives,” said Kenneth Martin, Jr., NHL Vice President of Diversity and Community Programming. “While both teams’ on-ice success have been credited with inspiring kids to play hockey, their off-ice dedication to NHL Street programming in their communities is equally praiseworthy.”

“The Kings are committed to improving our community and growing the game of hockey in Southern California,” said Kings President of Business Operations and Hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille. “This donation on behalf of the Kings, the Ducks and the NHL is a great way to help kick off what is going to be an exciting hockey game at Dodger Stadium on January 25.”

“The 2014 Legacy project will continue to expand the sport of hockey in local schools while helping support the health and wellness needs of our community,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Tim Ryan. “We are proud today to continue this initiative at Graham Elementary School, an invested participant in the Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education) Program.”

The NHL Stadium Series™ Los Angeles Legacy Initiative also marks an expansion of NHL Street™, the League-wide grassroots hockey program, in Southern California. For more than 20 years, NHL Street has introduced the sport to approximately 250,000 boys and girls each year in more than 1,600 schools and community centers across North America.

To celebrate the NHL Stadium Series™ Los Angeles Legacy Initiative and street hockey’s popularity in California, NHL Street participants from the Anaheim and Los Angeles areas will play pick-up games on a street hockey rink alongside their NHL counterparts at Dodger Stadium throughout the Jan. 25 Kings-Ducks game.

The NHL’s Legacy Initiative is an on-going philanthropic endeavor in which the NHL, the local NHL teams and NHL partners support community organizations in the host city as a legacy of an NHL event.

The Kings and Ducks will face off at iconic Dodger Stadium at 6:30 p.m. PT / 9:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014 as part of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series™, a group of games planned for outdoor locations this season.

The Los Angeles event will mark a series of firsts for the NHL and its fans as the Jan. 25 game will be the first outdoor regular season NHL game played in the U.S. west of the Mississippi River, the southern-most outdoor NHL game in history, and the first-ever outdoor NHL game in California. In its 51 year history, the venerable Dodger Stadium has hosted eight World Series and close to 4,000 regular-season games, but never a hockey game – marking another first for this NHL Stadium Series event.
