The annual Dodgers Pride Night at an LA Kings game returns on Tuesday, November 18th against the Florida Panthers. As always, I'll be attending the game and I will endeavor to get there early.
As you may know, for this event the Kings come out for their pregame/warm-up skate wearing specially made Dodger-themed hockey jersey's that will be auctioned off to benefit the Kings Care Foundation during the game. Last season, I just missed out on winning one, so I will take another stab at it come that Tuesday.
Heck, I probably shouldn't even mention this since all I am really doing is creating unwanted competition for myself in that auction. Nevertheless, since it's for a good cause I'll put aside my selfish intentions.
In past years a former Dodger player (or two) have been in attendance to sign autographs for fans. Unfortunately, no Dodger was present to sign last year. Although, early word has leaked that Justin Turner will drop the first puck (BTW, that's no guarantee he'll be greeting fans), via The Major John Hoven on twitter:
Sounds like @redturn2 (former CSUF standout) will drop the first puck for #Dodgers night at the stapler, 11/18 Kings v Panthers.
