Frozen Fury is an annual pre-season ice hockey game between Los Angeles Kings and Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL), held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The first game to be played in Las Vegas was also the first outdoor game in the league's history: 14,000 fans came to a rink set up outside Caesars Palace to see the Kings defeat the New York Rangers 5-2 on September 28, 1991. In a twist of irony, the air temperature was 85°F during the game. The game served as a predecessor to both the Frozen Fury series (which was played indoors) and the NHL Winter Classic, the annual regular season game held on New Year's Day that began in 2008.
