Watch: Tony Gonsolin Drops Ceremonial Puck For L.A. Kings Annual Dodgers Night

Originally published by

Tony Gonsolin made a trip to Arena to represent the Los Angeles Dodgers as the Los Angeles Kings hosted their annual promotional night to celebrate the MLB club they share the City of Angels with.

Gonsolin participated in the ceremonial puck drop before the Kings faced the New Jersey Devils in a rematch of the 2011-12 Stanley Cup Finals that saw the Kings win their first championship in club history.

The right-hander attending the game and participating in the puck drop continued a run of Dodgers’ players and organizational members being honored every season by the hockey club.

Last year during Dodgers Night, the Kings had Jaime Jarrín participate in the ceremonial puck drop before they faced off against the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.
