SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Jose Sharks will host the Los Angeles Kings in an outdoor game at the 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara this season.
The NHL announced Wednesday that the Pacific Division rivals will meet at Levi's Stadium on Feb. 21. The new $1.2 billion stadium beat out the San Francisco Giants' cozier confines at AT&T Park for the game.
Levi's Stadium seats about 68,500 for football, and the weather in Santa Clara is typically warmer and drier than in San Francisco, which is about 45 miles north.
This will be the second straight year the NHL has staged an outdoor game in California. The Anaheim Ducks beat the Kings 3-0 at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25.
