Hawks to open shortened season Jan. 19 at Kings

The Chicago Blackhawks will open the shortened 2013 NHL season Jan. 19 on the road against the reigning Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, a source confirmed Wednesday.

CSNChicago.com first reported the news.

The game will start at 2 p.m. Chicago time after a ceremony in which the Kings will receive their rings and raise their championship banner.

More details about the 48-game schedule are expected to become available soon after the deal to end the NHL lockout is finalized.
