LA Kings Relocation Tour 2008

The Los Angeles Kings continued their preseason relocation tour September 22nd, when they played at the Sprint Center versus the St. Louis Blues. The Kings won that game 2-1, but more important was the enthusiasm for hockey in KC. The fans want a team there, it’s a good sized market, the city would welcome a team….. and… BAM! 11,603 fans. Granted, it was a preseason game, and the Panthers get less fans than that during the regular season, but still, not a very good showing for a “hockey- starving” KC.
