Chase Utley has retired, but his popularity with fans of LA sports remains. Fans still talk about him, and even base their impressive works of art on his hard-nosed personality. Wednesday night, the Silver Fox was at the Staples Center to drop the ceremonial puck before the LA Kings hosted the Calgary Flames.

Stars Fill My Dream

Dodger fans have always loved Chase Utley, even though most of his career was played for a team that beat the Dodgers in the playoffs. Chase himself is an LA native and went to UCLA. He makes his home with his family in southern California. Last year Chase Utley also joined the SNLA crew for a handful of games. All pretty great stuff for a player so legendary in Philadelphia, that he is referenced heavily on the show, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

Kings and Foxes

The silver fox must have had a good luck effect on the Kings, (20-33-5) as the were able to beat the Flames by a final score of 5-3. The Kings have not had a good season, currently in last place in the Pacific division. Dodger fans in the crowd at Staples were certainly happy to cheer for more than just Chase Utley. On a night where they got to see Chase Utley after his 2018 retirement, the Kings took care of business.

  1. Utley probably could have been a good hockey player. He’s was a tough little dude who wasn’t afraid to mix it up.
