Meanwhile, the Lightning and Tampa Bay Times Forum will host a job fair from 5:00-9:00pm ET for anyone interested in applying for part-time positions during the upcoming NHL season (BIZJOURNALS.com, 1/10).
The NHL Kings will hold a press conference at 4:00pm PT at Staples Center to "kick off the season and, likely, to thank fans for their patience during the lockout." FS West will telecast live coverage of the event, which will feature top club execs and coach Darryl Sutter (L.A. TIMES, 1/9).
