When we looked at the lineup of Los Angeles Kings Heritage Nights, this one stuck out to our production manager, Vince Apostol. Being a Filipino American who grew up in Los Angeles playing youth hockey this one means a lot. To see his hometown Kings logo intertwined with traditional Filipino styling is a dream come true.
"A full circle moment. My culture, my passion, my work, my sport, and my lifelong favorite team all in one inclusive project. You don’t even have to know me that well to know how meaningful this is. Proud of and thankful for our team @violentgentlemen for making this happen and truly appreciate the @lakings for believing in opportunities like this. Representation is important and I’m honored to be a small part of this special night. The Filipino Heritage collection is available at the @teamlastore tonight with the Kings taking on the Dallas Stars and Jason Robertson @jasonrob19, the NHL’s first player of Filipino descent to be named an All-Star." - Vince Apostol @loudobnoxious
