The Los Angeles Kings are kicking off their annual Grammy’s Road Trip this year in Boston before heading over to DC for their first meeting this season with the Washington Capitals. They’ll finish up the five-game road swing in Columbus on February 9, 2015.
And in keeping with tradition, the Los Angeles Kings will be honored by President Obama at the White House for their second championship in three years.
It was another historical run for the Kings – dubbed cockroaches by defenseman Alec Martinez – as they went undefeated in elimination games while playing three Game 7’s on the road and competing in a record 26 games, the most ever since the NHL expanded to a seven-game format in all rounds.
No strangers to sharing the spotlight, the Kings will once again be joined by 5-time MLS Cup Champions LA Galaxy who defeated the New England Revolution 2-1 in extra time on December 7, 2014.
The president will honor his guests on Monday, February 2, 2015 at 2:00 PM (ET). It will be live streamed so be sure to check the LA Kings twitter account (@lakings) and their website for more details as the date approaches.
