The NHL has scheduled a press conference for March 29 at 10:30pm ET (March 30, 10:30am local time) in Beijing at LeSports Center for a "special announcement."
It is expected that the NHL will officially announce a series between the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks for the start of the 2017-18 NHL season.
This will mark the second series of games between NHL clubs overseas, as the Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche are expected to play two regular-season games in Stockholm, Sweden, in November.
On hand for the announcement will be NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA Special Assistant to the Executive Director Mathieu Schneider, along with Bloomage Chairman & Executive Director Madame Zhao Yan and O.R.G. Packaging Chairman Mr. Zhou Yunjie.
O.R.G. Packaging has been engaging in several NHL-related and NHL team related sponsorship deals over the last two seasons, and are among the primary sponsors for the anticipated games in Beijing.
