The Los Angeles Kings have a very storied history.
From their first year in the league to the current season, we have seen 2 Stanley Cups and numerous players, who helped this organization, come and go.
Although there are too many names to list, below is what I consider is the best All-Time team for the Los Angeles Kings. Several players are not listed but are not without due recognition.
From time to time we like to look back as fans and remember who played for their favorite team years ago and compare them to the franchise within the past 5 years. What I have done is make my own All-Time team for the franchise, adding players from different seasons to compile a very successful lineup.
Wayne Gretzky, Anze Kopitar, Marcel Dionne, and Mike Krushelnyski
Kyle Clifford, Luc Robitaille, Charlie Simmer, and Alex Frolov
Dustin Brown, Tony Granato, Charlie Simmer, and Dave Taylor
Drew Doughty, Rob Blake, Marty McSorley, Mattias Nordstrom, Jaroslav Modry, and Dave Hutchinson
Jonathan Quick and Kelly Hrudey
Not mentioned are players who made several, important contributions to the team in some fashion, or scoring some important or Stanley Cup-winning goal.
The Kings have had a rich tradition in having some of the best players in history wearing the Kings’ sweater. Some of those players include Defensemen Alec Martinez, Goaltender Grant Fuhr, Defensemen Steve Duchesne, Goaltender Felix Potvin, Goaltender Terry Sawchuk, and Forward Bernie Nichols.
What would your team look like? Who would you add and who would you subtract from what is listed above?
Let me see your team and we compare rosters. There are no right or wrong answers, just for fun.
