VIDEO: LA Kings ice comes to life for 2011-12 NHL season

As most of you know from following along on twitter and facebook, there was a little bit of an NHL season kick-off at Staples Center on Wednesday afternoon. Ethan Moreau, Luc Robitaille, Bailey and others were on hand for part of the ice preparation leading up to the 2011-12 season.

Earlier, I posted some pictures from the event and comments from Moreau.

Now you can check out some time lapse video that shows the process from start to finish. According to Staples Center representatives, the process takes nearly two and half days to fully complete. As you’ll see, things began following the LA Sparks game on August 30th and the ice was deemed ‘ready for skating’ earlier this afternoon.
