The LA Kings are scheduled to play eight preseason games prior to the start of the 2017-18 NHL season, including two games in China and three at STAPLES Center.

As announced by the NHL in March, preseason games between the Kings and Vancouver Canucks will be played on September 21 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai and on September 23 at Huaxi LIVE Wukesong's Le Sports Center in Beijing.

Those contests will be split squad games, as a portion of the Kings Training Camp roster will also play games as follows: September 18 at Arizona; September 22 at Anaheim; and September 26 at Las Vegas as the Kings face the expansion Vegas Golden Knights for the first time.

In addition, the Kings will host three preseason games at STAPLES Center as follows: September 16 versus Vancouver; September 28 versus Arizona; and September 30 versus Anaheim.
