AEG’s LA Kings welcomed the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team on Feb. 26 at STAPLES Center with thunderous applause following the team’s historic gold-medal victory at the recent Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

As one of the first stops of the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Promotional Tour, the Kings saluted the gold medalists during the pre-game program on the ice prior to the team, led by Team Captain Meghan Duggan, performing the ceremonial puck drop. The Kings also hosted a special meet-and-greet with players from the LA Lions, the all-girls youth hockey club founded and operated by the Kings.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of honoring a team that represented this country in a tremendous way, on and off the ice, at the recent Winter Games,” said Kings President Luc Robitaille.  “We strive to inspire the next set of great young hockey players and athletes through various clubs and programs, and we were so fortunate to be able to introduce players from our all-girls youth hockey club, LA Lions, to this Olympic team during their visit.”

The LA Lions Girls Hockey Program was created as an all-encompassing youth hockey program for female athletes in 2015. Designed for all ages and skill levels of youth hockey, the program teaches skill development, teamwork, sportsmanship, dedication and commitment. For more information on LA Lions, click here.
