Kings' 2025-26 Lineup Prediction

Kings' 2025-26 Lineup Prediction

June 28th, 2020 It's hard to be part of an NHL franchise that's in a rebuild. The team loses more games than they win, fans stop showing up, and there is less of a buzz around the arena and the city. Luckily for the Los Angeles Kings, the ping pong balls fell the right way at last Friday's Draft Lottery. After...

Kings Have Only One Option at No. 2: Tim Stützle

June 28th, 2020 The Los Angeles Kings were arguably the big winners of the NHL Draft Lottery. They did move up to No. 2 after all, and whichever prospect they pick will likely be a game-changer, but Adler Mannheim left-winger Tim Stützle is the one who puts them in the best position to be winners for years to...

Kings History

Though they waited until the 2011-12 season to hoist Lord Stanley (with a close encounter in 1993, thanks to Kerry Fraser), the Los Angeles Kings have produced many good NHL players. They started drafting in 1967, ahead of their inaugural season (1967-68), and have selected over 400 players. The following players are the Los Angeles Kings' top-10 draft picks of all-time. The criteria I used for this was simple - everyone that was ever selected by Los Angeles is eligible, regardless of the number of games played for the Kings themselves. This is a career judgment for the selection. 10. Jimmy Carson Year drafted 1986Selection Rd 1 (2)GP with LA 219GP overall 626 Jimmy Carson is the player that everyone forgets about. He wasn't just a toss-in for the Wayne Gretzky trade, he was actually good at playing hockey. Prior to being traded, he eclipsed the 100-point plateau in only his second season. He followed that with 100 points as a member of the Edmonton...

Kings History

This date in National Hockey League history has seen a lot of memorable moments throughout the decades. The greatest coach in the history of the game went out in style, the youngest first overall pick was made and the Hockey Hall of Fame welcomed in a whole slew of new names. Bowman Takes a Final Lap June 13 is a big date for Scotty Bowman and the Detroit Red Wings. On June 13, 1998, the Red Wings beat the Washington Capitals 2-1, in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. Tomas Holmstrom scored in the first period before Sergei Fedorov broke a 1-1 tie with less than five minutes to play. Steve Yzerman picked up his 24th point of the playoffs with an assist on the Holmstrom goal, tying a franchise record. The victory was the seventh straight in the Final for the Red Wings and brought them to within one win of their second straight championship. Four years later, on June 13, 2002, the Red Wings beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1, in Game 5 of the Final, to win their third Stanley Cup...

Kings History

June 11 has been a very exciting day in National Hockey League history. One franchise’s 45-year wait to wear the crown finally came to an end, while another team returned to championship series for the first time in a long time. This date also gave us the first repeat champions we’d seen in nearly two decades as well as four different NHL Drafts. Kings Finally Take the Throne It took them 45 years to reach the top of the mountain, but, on June 11, 2012, the Los Angeles Kings finally won their first championship. They beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1, in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, to become the first eight seed to win it all. The Kings took control of the game after Devils winger Steve Bernier was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for boarding, midway through the first period. Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis all scored on the ensuing five-minute power play to build a 3-0 lead. Carter and Lewis both added second goals before Matt Greene capped...

Ottawa Senators

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news on Jeff Carter out of the Los Angeles Kings organization, plus news the Ottawa Senators may be a cap floor team again next season. Meanwhile, as most insiders believe Jack Eichel isn't leaving Buffalo, some are asking what would it cost for a team to acquire him? And, are the other six non-playoff teams kicking tires? Carter's Future in Los Angeles Forwarwd Jeff Carter underwent surgery on June 4 to repair a core muscle injury. Since the Los Angeles Kings are not part of the play-in rounds or playoffs this season, this was the best time to get that surgery done and Carter should be fully recovered by next season. But, whether or not he plays in LA is still a question. Jeff Carter, Los Angeles Kings (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Almost 36, Carter has a front-loaded contract which means he's not owed very much on the tail end of his current deal. This could be attractive for teams trying to hit the cap floor but not...
