Bruins to play Kings in Quebec City during 2024 NHL preseason

Bruins to play Kings in Quebec City during 2024 NHL preseason originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Quebec City is set to host NHL preseason games in 2024, with the Boston Bruins confirmed as one of the participating teams.

The Bruins announced Tuesday they will play the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 3, 2024, at the Videotron Centre. This is exciting news for hockey fans in Quebec, who are hoping for the city to one day host an NHL team. In addition to the game against the Bruins, the Kings will also face the Florida Panthers on Oct. 5, 2024, in Quebec City.

Quebec City lost the Nordiques after the 1994-95 season when they relocated and became the Colorado Avalanche. Despite having a passionate hockey fanbase, the NHL has not returned to Quebec City since.

The Bruins have historical ties to Quebec City, having been rivals with the Nordiques in the old Adams Division and meeting in the 1982 and 1983 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Additionally, recently retired Bruins legend Patrice Bergeron hails from the area and grew up as a Nordiques fan.

The potential return of the NHL to Quebec City, either through expansion or relocation, is an exciting prospect. In the meantime, fans in and around the city can look forward to enjoying a couple of preseason games next fall.
