Last week, the Beijing Jr. Kings headed out to Los Angeles to spend a week with the LA Kings and Ontario Reign. Plus, they got the opportunity to experience the awesome practice facilities, AHL and NHL games, and more!
Beijing Jr. Kings is a youth hockey program run by the LA Kings and Ocean 24 SE’s client in Beijing, China.
The Beijing Jr. Kings arrived in LA on Sunday, February 10 and immediately got going with their busy schedule.
First Stop: The Reign game at the Citizen's Business Bank Arena.
From being on the ice for the anthem to getting a postgame meet and greet, it was a good night for these kids.
Next, they got to check out the Kings brand new Off-Ice Training Center! While at the facility, they got to develop their skills with the help of HockeyShot's equipment and the Kings Hockey Development Team.
But the day's fun really started when they hit the ice with a couple of the Reign players.
Then, on Wednesday, they watched the Kings practice while getting ready to hit the ice with Kings Alum Derek Armstrong.
Every young hockey player dreams of getting to skate with NHL players.
Now, these Beijing Jr. Kings get to check that of their bucket lists.
After exploring the practice facilities at Toyota Sports Center, the Beijing Jr. Kings finally made their way to STAPLES Center for two Kings games on Thursday and Saturday.
While the week with the Beijing Jr. Kings has come to an end, it was an incredible time having them out in LA and we wish them the best of luck in their season!
Go Beijing Jr. Kings Go!
