To build awareness for girl's hockey and in conjunction with USA Hockey's "Girls Hockey Weekend," AEG's LA Kings hosted a pre-game panel discussion for 150 young girls from local hockey programs in Southern California at Crypto.com Arena on October 8th.
The hour-long panel featured prominent current and former women's hockey players including Blake Bolden, Chelsey Goldberg, Keely Moy and Reagan Rust, who shared their stories and experiences with attendees.
The girls who were selected to participate were members of the LA Lions Girls Hockey Club, the Lady Ducks, the Power Project, San Diego Angels Girls Hockey and the Empowerment Effect. Following the discussion, the attendees watched the LA Kings final preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks.
“It Is great to be able to give back to youth programs and in particular to focus girls’ hockey,” said Blake Bolden, LA Kings Scout and Growth Inclusion Specialist. “Girls Hockey Weekend is a great opportunity to connect with youth teams, and support the girls' needs as they come up through this sport. It also gives us a chance inspire one another and share our love of hockey, as well as introduce the sport to new audiences. We hope that we reminded these girls that anything is possible.”
