“This is an incredible opportunity for our organization and we believe one that will be embraced by our community,” said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “Taking the brand of the LA Kings to these areas, in this our 50th Anniversary season, is something we look forward to as there is a great demand for ice where we live, especially at the holiday time.
“Over the past several years the success we have enjoyed downtown at LA LIVE led us and our partners to want to expand this program in its own unique way in each unique part of our city. This is a great overall community initiative that fits in well with our ‘Forever 50’ initiative.”
Each rink, which will be open to the public for skating, will be operated by American Sports Entertainment Centers, the operating team at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo and LA Kings Holiday Ice presented by Coca-Cola at L.A. LIVE.
“We are excited to further our relationship with the LA Kings in bringing more exciting holiday skating to Southern California. It is a great partnership and the community really benefits during a fun, festive time of year,” said Brad Berman, President of American Sports Entertainment Centers.
