LA Kings planning London matches
The O Arena was formerly known as the Millennium Dome
Greenwich's 0 Arena looks set to host the exhibition games
The NHL is set to follow the NFL to London after the Los Angeles Kings declared plans to play two pre-season matches in the capital.

Mike Altieri, vice-president of communications for the Californian club, admits discussions have taken place over a London exhibition.

The Kings are expected to release a statement disclosing more information in the next few weeks.

"It is being discussed, but nothing has been finalised yet," revealed Altieri.

The Los Angeles Times reports the games are likely to take place at the O Arena, formerly known as the Millennium Dome, before the start of next season.

Sport and entertainment company AEG, who are building the Arena, own the Kings franchise as well as the Staples Center in Los Angeles where the team play their home fixtures.

The Times also says Marc Crawford's side will most probably face the Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks.

Earlier this month, the NFL announced the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants would meet at Wembley Stadium in October.
