NHL Lockout: Kings Issue Statement On Cancelation Of Frozen Fury

The Los Angeles Kings issued a statement on Wednesday, after the NHL lockout wiped out the team's preseason and cancelled the team's annual Frozen Fury preseason game against the Colorado Avalanche.

The league's lockout was announced on Sunday by NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, after its collective bargaining agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL expired at midnight on Sept. 15. Wednesday, the league announced the cancellation of its preseason schedule through Sep. 30.

The Frozen Fury game was supposed to be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sept. 29. The team has offered refunds for game tickets at point of sale and issued an apology for the inconvenience.

The following Kings preseason contests have also been cancelled:

  • Mon., Sept. 24, Coyotes, Phoenix, Jobing.com Arena, 7:30 p.m.
  • Mon., Sept. 24, Coyotes, Los Angeles, STAPLES Center, 7:30 p.m.
