SALT LAKE CITY — The second edition of the "Salt Lake Shootout" — which brings National Hockey League action to Vivint Arena — has a date.
The Los Angeles Kings will host the Vancouver Canucks in a preseason NHL game on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. MT, the arena announced Friday.
Los Angeles beat Vancouver 4-1 last season in the first year of a three-year agreement that brings preseason NHL hockey to Salt Lake City. Two Utah connections — forward Trevor Lewis of Cottonwood Heights and defenseman Daniel Brickley of Skyline High — were a part of the Kings last season.1 comment on this story
Los Angeles will also play a preseason game at Vivint Arena in 2020.
