“It’s exciting for sure,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty told NHL.com. “I don’t know a lot about the Air Force and so I’m excited to maybe go in there early and experience it. Playing in the game will be really cool. Might be hard with the altitude and Colorado’s a good team so it’s going to be a good matchup. Always excited for outdoor games.”READ MORE: Senate Committee To Review Mayor Garcetti's Nomination For India Ambassadorship
