LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings Ice Crew is the most popular set of team ambassadors in hockey; think of them as the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders of the NHL. The Kings Ice Crew promotes hockey in Southern California, entertain fans on game nights and make appearances at LA Kings watch parties while the team is on the road.
They also work to raise money for the Kings Care Foundation, the charitable arm of the hockey club. On Sunday the Ice Crew participated in the Walk for Kids in Exposition Park and Citizen’s Business Bank Arena “a 5K event to raise funds and awareness for the services and programs provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California.”
One of the group’s main sources of fundraising is the Kings Ice Crew bikini calendar; they’ve collected more than $100,000 to date for charities. Kings Vision was on hand for the 2013 Ice Crew calendar photo shoot and provided this behind-the-scenes look of Ashley, Ms. March.
