The LA Kings are expected to play a game in Salt Lake City, as the NHL may be planning on seeing the potential outcome it has on a potential expansion team in Utah. It began to cause a huge blow to Canadiens fans and the Quebec government as the Kings offered to play in Salt Lake City for free, while they are getting payed 7 million dollars to also play in Quebec City.

Canadiens get refused by government

The Kings organization will get compensated 7 million dollars for playing in Quebec City from the CAQ, who is the government party of Quebec. A huge blow to the Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson, who offered to play in their own province free of charge. It caused outrage from the quebec population during the time due to teaching strikes and spending money in the wrong way.
So the LA Kings will play a preseason game in Salt Lake City for free.

Meanwhile the QC gov. will pay the LA Kings upwards of $7 million taxpayer dollars to play 2 games in Quebec City.

The Montreal Canadiens announced they would have played games for free but the CAQ refused.

Essentially the LA Kings will play in Salt Lake City for free, while they are getting payed by the government of Quebec 7 million dollars. It definitely seems like a weird situation by the government of Quebec, who willingly payed a hefty price when they could've had the Montreal Canadiens come and play free of charge
