The Los Angeles Kings are excited to welcome the newest addition to the team, Bailey! Bailey is originally from the MGM Grand Lion Habitat in Las Vegas, Nevada. After catching the Frozen Fury game in September of 2007 in Las Vegas, Bailey was amazed at the Kings level of talent and teamwork. Bailey knew immediately that he had to find a way to join the team.
He wanted nothing more then to become a professional hockey player and the lack of ice in Las Vegas was not going to get in his way of following his dream. In a desperate attempt to be a member of the Kings, Bailey leaped on a plane with one destination, the Staples Center. Upon arrival, Bailey was disappointed to learn that all the spots on the team had been filled, yet the Kings could not turn away this lovable lion who had so much excitement for Kings hockey.
This energized lion loves entertaining thousands of hockey fans and making new friends. Bailey also enjoys making community appearances and putting smiles on people’s faces. He cannot wait to see you at a game soon!
