Dodger Stadium to host Kings-Ducks outdoor game on Jan. 25

USA TODAY Sports

Dodger Stadium will host the first outdoor NHL game ever in the state of California.

The NHL has had success in recent years with outdoor games, though those tend to be in cold weather cities. That all changes on Jan. 25, 2014, when the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks will play a game at Dodger Stadium, the NHL announced on Monday. It will be the first-ever regular season outdoor NHL game west of the Mississippi River.

The 7 p.m. ET game will be televised by NHL Network, and several pregame features and coverage will be available on both NHL Network and NHL.com.

"At a venue that represents so much glorious sports history, this match-up of Stanley Cup champions will raise our outdoor initiatives to bold new heights," said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. "We know the game will be a treat for our fans, and we thank the Ducks, the Kings, Coors Light, Dodger Stadium and the Los Angeles Dodgers for bringing it to life."

This will be the first hockey game ever played at Dodger Stadium.

"Dodger Stadium has been home to many unique and special moments over the past 51 years," said Los Angeles Dodgers President Stan Kasten. "We'll add another first in 2014 when the Dodger Stadium infield turns to ice as we host our first National Hockey League game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks."
