In what’s become a tradition between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Kings, the Kings hosted Dodgers Pride Night at Staples Center on Tuesday.
The evening featured Kings players warming up in Dodger-styled hockey jerseys that were since made available via auction. After Jerry Hairston, Jr. and Brian Wilson have had the honor in years prior, Justin Turner was on hand to drop the ceremonial first puck, which can be watched below:
Turner also took time to pose for photographs with fans:

During a Dodgers home game that was being played on the same night as Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Dodger Stadium erupted into celebration when the Kings won in overtime.
Last season, the Dodgers held an LA Kings at Dodger Stadium, which included a t-shirt with purchase of tickets in the right field pavilion. Bailey, several Kings players and the Kings Ice Crew were all on hand as part of the evening’s festivities.
