NHL rivals set to meet in London
The O Arena was formerly known as the Millennium Dome
Greenwich's 0 Arena looks set to host the exhibition games
The NHL will play regular-season games in Europe for the first time when the Anaheim Ducks face the LA Kings in London to open the 2007-08 campaign.

The teams will play two games, on 29 and 30 September, at London's new O2 Arena, formerly the Millennium Dome.

London's Wembley Arena was the site of pre-season NHL games in 1992 and 1993.

The NBA recently announced that the Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves will play a pre-season game later this year at the 02 Arena.

"This a great honour for us, to be chosen to play in the NHL's first regular-season games in Europe," Anaheim Ducks general manager Brian Burke said.

"Showcasing a great rivalry between two clubs from the Southern California market will be terrific for the NHL."
