If you're seeking some nostalgia on a busy night in the NHL, look no further than the Los Angeles Kings-Edmonton Oilers broadcast Saturday night.

The Kings will be hosting '90s night at Staples Center, and FOX Sports West is bringing back the 'Glow Puck' as a part of the festivities, the team announced.

What's that, you may ask? Take a look at it in action from the 1996 All-Star Game:

"We won't be able to give the speed of the shot," FOX Sports producer Steven Dorfman said, according to Kevin Allen of USA Today. "But we can simulate the glow of the puck, and we can simulate the tracking of the puck."

The 'Glow Puck' was introduced in 1995 as a tactic to help newcomers to the sport follow the action a little bit easier.

"It was brand new back then, and it was polarizing," Dorfman said. "Hockey purists thought it was insulting, the idea that you would need an effect on the puck to see it. Other people drew to it because it was new."
