LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings will go BACK IN BLACK in 168 hours – exactly one week from now when the team unveils their new Alternate Jersey – when the Kings host the Colorado Avalanche at STAPLES Center next Saturday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m.
The Kings’ Reebok Alternate Jersey will first be seen that night at 7:34 p.m. when the Kings come through the tunnel prior to the game. The Kings will wear their regular Crown/black home jerseys for pre-game warm-ups, and as the players come off the ice, 20 Kings season ticket members will be in the hallway outside the Kings dressing room to hand a Kings player their new Alternate Jersey. The players, with new jersey in hand, will continue into their dressing room and change into the new sweater before the game.
All Kings fans are encouraged to arrive early for that game and to dress in black.
To see and hear Kings forwards Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar talk about the yet-to-be-seen jersey, and for more on BACK IN BLACK, visit www.lakings.com/backinblack.
