10 Key Dates for LA Kings, including 2011 training camp

Soon after the Stanley Cup parade takes place in some North American city, it happens.

Millions of fans everywhere began to experience hockey withdrawals, or ‘summer’ as it’s more commonly referred to.

Fortunately, the early part of the off-season has a hat-trick of activities that can partially keep the fire stoked via the NHL Awards, NHL Draft and start of free agency.

Then, today comes. People flip the calender to August – well, those that still literally do things like that – and realize there’s not one thing scheduled even partially resembling the sport they love.

Bare with us though. You can do it. Make it another 30 days and look what’s on the other side…
