25 years ago outdoor hockey made its way to Las Vegas

Wayne Gretzky, others recount Kings-Rangers classic at Caesars Palace

by Pat Pickens @Pat_Pickens / Staff Writer

Outdoor hockey has become a regular part of the NHL calendar with the annual Winter Classic and Stadium Series games. But in 1991, the idea of playing an NHL game outdoors was nearly incomprehensible.

But dreamers from the Los Angeles Kings and Caesars Palace in Las Vegas made outdoor hockey -- in the desert, no less -- a reality 25 years ago.

On Sept. 27, 1991, the Kings and New York Rangers played a preseason game on a rink in the casino's parking lot.

50 Years In LA: The Building of the "Fabulous Forum"

by Emily Hummel @hummeline /

With the 50th anniversary of the Kings this coming year, we wanted to take the opportunity to take a closer look at the city of Los Angeles-the city the Kings have called home their whole life. We'll be digging into various aspects of the city and how it's grown and evolved over the years, from music to sports to architecture. For our first piece, we're taking a look at the building of the "Fabulous Forum" in Inglewood, where the Kings found their first home.

It began with the first expansion in NHL history in 1967. The '67 expansion was a much bigger risk than we tend to realize. The NHL at the time had not expanded beyond a small area of the Northeastern United States and into Canada, and a team in Los Angeles would be the southern-most team, as well as a place where it doesn't actually snow in the winter.

In honor of the franchise's 50th anniversary, this is the first in a series of 50 forgotten Kings stories. Going beyond the classic, well-worn tales, this series is for the die-hard fans…who thought they knew everything about their favorite team. 

"The bidding for Los Angeles' major league hockey franchise is beginning to look like a rush for the last knothole at a nudist camp." (Roberts, Rich. "NHL Interest Sky High-$312,625 Worth." Independent Press-Telegram, January 16, 1966.)
