The Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League will have a Los Angeles Galaxy night when they host the New York Islanders at the Staples Center on Oct. 18. The Kings and Galaxy have a connection because they are both owned by the same company, AEG.
Prior to the game, the Kings will be wearing Galaxy-themed jerseys which will be auctioned off to the Kings Care Foundation. Fans will also receive an LA Kings/LA Galaxy clear backpack sponsored by Rocket League. A member of the Galaxy will be involved in a ceremonial puck drop, the Galaxy anthem singer Malea Emma will sing the American national anthem, while the Galaxy mascot Cozmo and the LA Galaxy Star Squad will be in attendance.
The LA Galaxy are currently in the hunt for a playoff spot in the MLS Western Conference standings. They are currently in seventh place in the division with 45 points (12 wins, 11 losses and nine ties). The Galaxy is one point back of Real Salt Lake and two points back of the Seattle Sounders, and two points up on the Vancouver Whitecaps.
