The LA Kings annual Pride game took place on March 1st when the team took on the Columbus Blue Jackets at STAPLES Center.
Kings players, staff, fans and partners showed their support for the LGBT community throughout the night to demonstrate the team's commitment to inclusiveness.
Before the game even began, Kings players used rainbow wrapped sticks during warm-ups. These sticks, along with LA Kings Rainbow Jerseys, were auctioned through the Kings Care Foundation mobile auction.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who identifies as gay, and Eric Stonestreet, who is an LGBT ally, dropped the puck to begin the game.
