European openers likely for Kings

It’s not yet official, but multiple sources have said that the Kings are on track to open next season with games in Germany and Sweden. One scenario — the most likely — has the Kings playing one preseason game, plus the season opener, in Germany, then playing the second game of the season in Stockholm. The league has yet to announce its intentions in terms of which teams will play where in Europe. Michael Altieri, the Kings’ vice president of communications, said, “We are working with the League on the potential opportunity but there is nothing to confirm at this time.” The Kings and Anaheim Ducks opened the 2007-08 season with two games in London.
