What is Hockey Day SoCal?
• It's a theme day created by the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, Ontario Reign, San Diego Gulls and FOX Sports West/Prime Ticket/FOX Sports San Diego. The inaugural date consists of a variety of fan facing events including fan fests, viewing parties, youth games and more. The day will conclude with all four professional hockey teams playing that night, including live coverage of the Ducks vs. LA Kings across FOX Sports West/Prime Ticket/FOX Sports San Diego.
• To help raise awareness of Youth/AHL/NHL hockey in Southern California as well as drive ratings for the evening's FREEWAY FACEOFF.
How can people participate?

Will Hockey Day SoCal become an annual event?
• We hope this is the beginning of an annual tradition. We were inspired by an event called Hockey Day in Minnesota. It's been around for 10 years and it's become a huge event.
