After Smith Entertainment Group obtained the NHL team in April, an SEG spokesperson said that the Frozen Fury would go ahead as planned. However, plans have since changed.

The club’s first home exhibition is scheduled for September 23, which was the date slated for the 2024 Frozen Fury matchup between the LA Kings and Vegas Golden Knights.

With Utah’s acquisition of an NHL franchise, the Frozen Fury contest has been canceled and the Kings will no longer play the Golden Knights. Instead, Utah will host Los Angeles at the Delta Center on the original Frozen Fury date. LA has played five preseason games in Utah since 2018.

2024 would have been the fourth consecutive year a Frozen Fury game would have been played at the Delta Center.

Tickets for the Frozen Fury will be refunded. Those who purchased Frozen Fury tickets will have the chance to buy tickets for the preseason game against LA before the remaining tickets go on sale to the general public.

The game against LA will also be included in packages for 2024-25 Utah season ticket holders.

The Frozen Fury series started in 1997 and was played in Las Vegas, Nevada until 2016. Frozen Fury moved to Salt Lake City in 2021.

After hosting Los Angeles, Utah Hockey Club will play road games against nearby teams in the Vegas Golden Knights, Colorado Avalanche, San Jose Sharks, and Anaheim Ducks before heading home.

The team will wrap up the preseason by hosting the Avalanche at the Maverik Center in West Valley City. The game won’t be played at the Delta Center “due to a prior commitment” at the team’s home arena.
