Rink at Dodger Stadium almost ready for use

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- The surface of the outdoor rink at Dodger Stadium almost has all the bells and whistles. In a few days, it should be ready for some referee whistles.

With all the other ice markings in place, the center-ice logo and other branding logos were about to be painted Monday night for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game, the first regular season West Coast outdoor game in NHL history, on Saturday between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks.

Dan Craig, the NHL's Senior Director of Facilities Operations, also said his crew will build another quarter-inch of ice and then another quarter-inch to get to the required 1½ inches by Tuesday night.

Wednesday will be the first time the rink will be used, when the media game is held, and Craig said he's curious to see how the first run goes.

Ice surface coming along despite high temps in L.A.

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- It was difficult to ignore the stillness at Dodger Stadium on Saturday evening as Dan Craig sat down in front of what will soon be the Los Angeles Kings bench.

Normally, the baseball cathedral fills with din from thousands of L.A. Dodgers fans cheering behind Nancy Bea Hefley's organ, but the only sounds this night were the water from an eight-foot sprayer on the ice surface.

Craig, the NHL's senior director of facilities operations, called Dodger Stadium an intimate setting for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Jan. 25.

"This has a great personality," Craig said.

Craig and his crew had just taken off the thermal wraps that keep the surface cool from the Southern California daytime heat and were about to lay down three layers of white base paint and a quarter-inch of seal in the next step of the outdoor rink's installation. The ice markings will be put down Sunday -- with a non-paint product that doesn't bleed -- and the logo will be installed Monday.

Gretzky gets rock-star treatment at Dodger Stadium

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Construction workers leaned in and took cell phone pictures. Cameras followed him every step of the way, paparazzi-style, as he we walked from the Dodger Stadium parking lot to the infield of the venerable building.

Yes, Wayne Gretzky still retains rock-star status, and his appearance Monday to advance the NHL's first-ever West Coast regular-season outdoor game, between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Jan.25, was no insignificant event.

It was 25 years ago in August that Gretzky helped make hockey a part of Southern California culture when he arrived to the Kings from the Edmonton Oilers, standing in a scrum of reporters in a sharp black suit on a glorious 80-degree day.

Backyard rink has Palmieri ready for Dodger Stadium

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Growing up in Montvale, N.J., Anaheim Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri had one of the coolest dads on the block.

Bruce Palmieri works in construction, and when he noticed his oldest son developing into one of the more talented players in the state, he decided to apply his skills to cause by building a backyard rink.

"I started playing when I was 5 or 6 [years old]," Kyle Palmieri said. "When I started to like it and commit to it and play it every day, he saw an opportunity to give himself another hobby during the winter. He takes real good care of it. He takes it seriously."

Bruce Palmieri still puts up the ankle-high boards and floods the backyard every winter, and Kyle said he plans on skating a few laps with his younger brother, two older sisters and other friends and family members during the League's Christmas break if the weather cooperates. With the Ducks finishing a long road trip at the Washington Capitals on Monday, Palmieri will be able to spend part of the NHL's three-day holiday break at home.
