Report: Los Angeles bidding for 2017 NHL All-Star game

Damien Cox and Elliotte Friedman discuss Brandon Dubinsky’s suspension, the decline in fighting, and when we could see Carey Price in goal for the Montreal Canadiens.

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the Los Angeles Kings are apparently bidding to host the 2017 NHL All-Star game.

More information can be found here:

Los Angeles hosted the event twice before; once in 1981 and again in 2002. The 2017 season will mark 50 years in the club’s history.

With all the talk around the event’s new format this year, one can only wonder in what form the game will be by then.

The 2016 All-Star game takes place in Nashville.
