Photo: Gann Matsuda

On the eve of the Los Angeles Kings’ 2011 Training Camp, and just days away from the first pre-season game, it is time to celebrate the return of hockey. To help us all get into the spirit, Frozen Royalty will be giving away two sets of four, lower bowl, ice-level seats for that game, on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, 7:30 PM Pacific time at Staples Center in Los Angeles, against the Phoenix Coyotes.

But…there’s a catch. First, you must be a Facebook and/or a Twitter user. Second, you’re going to have to do a little homework to earn them. Here’s what you’ll need to do to qualify and win:

For Facebook users ONLY…

1) Correctly answer the following question:

 

Rogie Vachon, holder of just about all Kings records for goaltenders, had quite the “rude welcome” to the National Hockey League when he made his debut as a rookie with the Montreal Canadiens in 1966-67.

Describe what that “rude welcome” was, and provide the title and URL (also known as the link or web address) of the Frozen Royalty story where you found the answer.

Submit your answer by leaving it as a comment below ON OR AFTER NOON Pacific time on Friday, September 16, 2011. Be sure to use your full name and a real e-mail address (if you’d like me to be able to connect with you if you win, which would probably be a good thing). Also provide the URL to your Facebook profile in your comment.

Submissions posted prior to the time specified above will not be accepted.

2) You must already “Like” the Frozen Royalty page on Facebook, or you must do so PRIOR to the contest deadline (see below). Frozen Royalty’s page on Facebook can be found at:

NOTE: Answers must be posted below, NOT on Facebook.

3) Recommend Frozen Royalty’s Facebook page on your Facebook profile PRIOR to the contest deadline (see below).

For Twitter users ONLY…

1) Correctly answer the following:

A former Kings defenseman once said that his puck handling skills were so poor early in his career that he wasn’t even able to carry the puck using a “container.”

Name that player, and provide the title and URL of the Frozen Royalty story where you found the answer.

Submit your answer by leaving it as a comment below ON OR AFTER NOON Pacific time on Friday, September 16, 2011. Be sure to use your full name and a real e-mail address (if you’d like me to be able to connect with you if you win, which would probably be a good thing). Also provide your Twitter account name in your comment.

Submissions posted prior to the time specified above will not be accepted.

NOTE: Answers must be posted below, NOT on Twitter.

GENERAL RULES:

The deadline for submissions is 9:00 PM Pacific time on Monday, September 19, 2011. For each set of tickets, the first person to submit the correct answer and meet all requirements set forth above, will be the winner.

One prize per person/household.

All submissions will be held (not published immediately) until the end of the contest.

  1. His rude awakening into the NHL was a break away from Gordie Howe!

    I found the answer in this article: Former LA Kings And Montreal Canadiens Great Rogie Vachon Still On The Outside Looking In

    Answer: Facing the legendary Gordie Howe, at the time, the best player to have ever played the game, on a breakaway in his NHL debut.

      Aaron…you are the winner of the four tickets to the Twitter user who was first to correctly answer the question about the Kings defenseman who said that his puck handling skills were so poor early in his career that he couldn’t carry it in a “container.” Indeed it was Jay Wells. You’ve also met the other requirements specified, so congratulations!

      I’ll be contacting you by e-mail to let you know the details.

    The first shot that Rogie Vachon faced in his debut as a rookie with the Montreal Canadiens was a breakaway from Gordie Howe.

    “That night, the trainer gave me the puck, so that was a bit of a shock,” added Vachon. “Especially during the warm-up when I was trying to settle down. On top of that, my first shot in the National Hockey League was a breakaway from Gordie Howe from the blue line in.”

    Facing the legendary Gordie Howe, at the time, the best player to have ever played the game, on a breakaway in his NHL debut? Talk about a rude welcome to the league!

  5. Mike Lopez says:

    The ‘rude welcome’ for Rogie Vachon was in his first career NHL game, the first shot he would ever face in his career was a breakaway by Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe. Vachon would stop him on that breakaway and go on to win the game for his first win in the NHL.

      Sorry Victor, but even though you answered the question correctly, you weren’t the first one. But even if you were, you did not follow the rules or meet the requirements specified for this contest.

      You might want to read more carefully next time! Thanks though!

    I imagine any other goalie in that position would have let the puck in…;)

    OK folks…we have our winners, so even though the contest deadline was on Monday, it’s now closed. Also, a few people submitted their answers prior to the start of the contest. Those submissions were rejected on that basis.

    Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to giveaway more tickets during the season. Thanks for participating!
