A reminder to everyone that we’re fast approaching the second and final “suite night’’ event of the season, to be held next Saturday (Jan. 21) as the Kings host Colorado. For the uninitiated, the “suite night’’ events are a great series started by the dedicated Frank Robledo. It’s five adjoining suites at Staples Center, with a chance to enjoy the game with fellow blog readers and some special guests. Many on the blog can speak to the fun had at previous events. This time, Frank has not only secured the traditional pregame shot on goal, in which fans can go onto the Staples Center ice and take a shot, but he has also organized a postgame skate. This isn’t just a walk onto the carpet. You’ll be able to bring your own skates and take a twirl on the ice for a while after the game. Important note: You must bring your own skates. The cost for the entire event is $75, and only about a dozen tickets remain. To get one, click the link below and enter the code “kingsinsider.’’ Hope to see you there!
Also, for those who might not have seen this yesterday, in the lead-up to the game, I did a story about Darryl Sutter’s return to Calgary. It’s going to be a huge story up here, and Sutter shared some thoughts about coming back to the city where he spent eight years, first as coach and then as general manager.
