Hockey is back! Kind of. At least it will be on January 13, when the 2020-21 56-game regular season begins.

Following the announcement from the NHL and NHLPA, fans took to social media to celebrate and share their thoughts on the season's return.

 The Kings also opened up to Twitter to ask the audience who would bury the Kings goal.

Anze Kopitar? Drew Doughty? Dustin Brown? Adrian Kempe? Quinton Byfield? Here are some of social media's responses.

Tweet from @angelpuff1987: I really wanna see Byfield to score first or Either Kopitar or Doughty but can���t wait for the season to start🏒🖤🥅🚨

Tweet from @wackman3209: Feeling a great season by Kempe, so gonna go with Adrian Kempe

Tweet from @RickHentges: I really don't care, just as long as the Kings make the playoffs!! Go Kings Go!!

Tweet from @JenSipe1: Brownie...and why not make it a hatty?! 😉👑 pic.twitter.com/5KXsw066l4

Needless to say, no matter who scores the first goal for Kings, we are ready to see it. Go Kings Go!
