Delta Center Extends Agreement to Host Frozen Fury with the Los Angeles Kings
The LA Kings return to Salt Lake City on Sept. 23 to host the Vegas Golden Knights for the 2024-25 NHL preseason
SALT LAKE CITY (February 12, 2024) – Today, Delta Center announced a multi-year extension of its agreement with the Los Angeles Kings to host the team’s Frozen Fury series – an NHL preseason game – in Utah. The next game will take place at 7 P.M. MT on Monday, Sept. 23, 2024, when the Kings take on the Vegas Golden Knights at Delta Center.
Tickets for Frozen Fury will go on sale to the general public at DeltaCenter.com on Friday, Feb. 16. An event presale for LA Kings and Golden Knights fans and those who sign up in advance for the Delta Center newsletter will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 10 A.M. with code DELTA. Details regarding the game broadcast will be confirmed at a later date.
“We have an incredible partnership with the Kings and look forward to welcoming this exciting NHL preseason series back to Utah,” said Mark Powell, SVP of events at the Utah Jazz. “We continue to see strong demand for live hockey, and the games get more lively to watch. It’s well known how much Utah loves hockey, and we are proud to continue to bring this incredible experience to our community.”
The 2024 NHL preseason game will be the third consecutive LA Kings game at Delta Center and the sixth time overall the arena has hosted NHL hockey. Hockey first came to Delta Center in 2018 and 2019 when the Kings competed against the Vancouver Canucks in an event known as the “Salt Lake Shootout.” When the team returned to Salt Lake City in 2021, the preseason event was renamed “Frozen Fury” in a nod to an event series the LA Kings originally created to be played in Las Vegas beginning in 1997.
“The Kings have thoroughly enjoyed our relationship with Delta Center, and our annual preseason game in Salt Lake City is an event we look forward to each September,” said Luc Robitaille, LA Kings President and Hockey Hall of Famer. “Salt Lake City is a tremendous market for hockey. This new agreement helps us continue to bring NHL hockey to a beautiful area and to a fanbase very passionate about our sport.”
Frozen Fury is one of more than 300 events held at Delta Center annually as the venue continues to play a critical role in Utah’s ability to attract major sports and entertainment showcases. The event is sponsored by the Utah Sports Commission.
The arena is home to the Utah Jazz and select SLC Stars games – the G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz – as well as other sports, concerts, community events, and performances. In 2023, Delta Center hosted multiple sporting events that attracted a global audience including the 2023 NBA All Star in February, UFC 291 in July – the second UFC pay-per-view fight to take place at the arena in less than a year – and Frozen Fury in October when the Kings beat the San Jose Sharks in overtime.
This announcement comes as Smith Entertainment Group (SEG) – owners of Delta Center – continue to pursue bringing the NHL to Utah on a permanent basis through the expansion process.
