You, there! It isn’t too late to join your fellow LA Kings Insiders in a Staples Center suite this Saturday night when the Kings host the visiting Dallas Stars.

In about two hours, however, it will be too late.

UPDATE: This Saturday’s Suite Night is sold out. Those whose tickets are currently queued on the Staples Center site will be able to purchase them. Thank you again for your participation in what will be a great evening!

There’s some more good news for Saturday. We’ve been cleared for a pre-game on-ice puck shoot. Those who have attended Suite Nights in the past may have already been a part of this, but if you’re unfamiliar with the event, those who purchase a Suite Night ticket will be able to walk onto the ice prior to the game and wrist a shot or two into the open net. We’ll all get together for a group photo before heading back up to the suite, where Pat Donahue, Manager, Digital Media, and I will discuss the LA Kings Insider platform and answer your questions before we all turn our attention to the game.

I’m excited to meet those of you whom I haven’t met yet… and to watch the game in comfort of a Staples Center suite! Hopefully there’s an NLCS Game 7 we can put on a television in the background.

For those taking part in the puck shoot:

We will assemble at 6:00 p.m. at STAPLES CENTER outside Guest Services in the Main Concourse (by section 110) and will be led downstairs shortly afterwards. Doors open at 6 p.m., so please make your way to Guest Services upon entering the building.

-I’ll have waivers for everyone in the group to sign upon arrival.
-When you walk on the carpet, please pick up your feet and avoid dragging the carpet.
-Please don’t set foot on the ice. Touching the ice with your hand is OK.
-Please don’t take slapshots or aim for the glass.
-Please take 3-4 shots, and then let another person in your group go. The experience is time sensitive, and we want to make sure the entire group can take part.
-Have fun!

Thank you for taking part! Pat and I look forward to chatting on Saturday. If you have any questions about the event, feel free to email me at jonnyrosen@gmail.com.
