LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings have confirmed they are interested in hosting an outdoor game next season, and the Anaheim Ducks would love to be their opponent.

Kings spokesman Mike Altieri said Sunday that the defending Stanley Cup champions are aggressively working to get plans in place for an outdoor game in Southern California, although nothing has been finalized.

Citing no sources, the Los Angeles Times reports that the Kings and Ducks are hoping to face off in a regular-season night game Jan. 25 at Dodger Stadium, using the NHL's portable rink and ice refrigeration systems.

The NHL has acknowledged it is interested in expanding its outdoor schedule beyond the annual Winter Classic, slated for Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium between Detroit and Toronto.
