LA Kings Take Pride in Celebrating Hockey is For Everyone

Last night, as the Kings hosted the Nashville Predators, they celebrated their annual Pride Night

by LA Kings @LAKings / LAKings.com

In an effort to drive positive social change, and part of the NHL's Hockey is For Everyone initiative, the LA Kings celebrated Pride Night on March 14 as they faced the Nashville Predators! 

Hockey is for Everyone is the NHL's global initiative to foster more inclusive communities through the game of hockey. We couldn't wait to see fans come together from all demographics to enjoy the game they love!

The team took the ice with Pride Tape and Pride Warm Up Jerseys!

Don't worry, the irony of the jersey color matching our opponents was not lost on us. 

The rainbow-taped sticks and jerseys that players used during warm ups were available for fans to bid on through the Kings Care Auction.

A total of $4,325 in proceeds from the sticks will go towards the You Can Play Project and $12,098 in proceeds from the jerseys will go towards The Trevor Project.

The arena had a special feel as well, with the lights filling the ice with rainbow colors, and the jumbotron featuring special Pride Night graphics!

The West Coast Singers, an LGBTQ Choral Group, sang the anthem while the Kings honored the Hero of the Game, a Marine, who had her wife and daughter in attendance.

Fans who purchased a Pride Night ticket pack automatically donated a portion of their ticket to the True Colors United Fund by Cyndi Lauper.

Tweet from @kyliesparks: If I may fill your timelines with some good right now, it���s Pride Night at the LA Kings game and there are so many parents here with queer teens and queer kids with pride flags. Everyone is hugging on the jumbotron.
