The Los Angeles Kings will play two preseason games in Las Vegas at the recently opened T-Mobile Arena. They’ll host the Stars on Friday, Oct. 7, and the Avalanche the next day.

The Kings have already played numerous preseason games in Las Vegas as part of their Frozen Fury series, but those games were held at the MGM Grand.

“We are excited to be featured in one of the very first sporting events at the new T-Mobile Arena and we look forward to creating new Frozen Fury memories there,” said the Kings’ president of business operations, Luc Robitaille, in a release.

T-Mobile Arena is, of course, the potential future home of a Las Vegas expansion team. Its construction was a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and AEG, the latter of which owns the Kings.
