Los Angeles Kings was established on February 9, 1966 by the time Jack Kent Cooke awarded the NHL franchise expansion for Los Angeles. They started to play as being part of 1967 NHL expansion. The team is situated in Los Angeles California, United States as obviously seen in the team’s name.
The team considered “The Forum” at Inglewood, California to be the team’s home for almost 32 years until they decided to move in Staples Centre found in Downtown Los Angeles starting the season in the year 1999-2000.
During 1970s and early 1980s, the LA Kings achieved impressive and remarkable play during the regular season. The team’s highlight comprises the powerful goal tending Rogie Vachon and the “Triple Crown Line” known as Dave Taylor, Charlie Simmer and Marcel Dionne, a Hall of Fame player. They are the popular upset for the immerging Edmonton Oilers in the 1982 playoff game called as Miracle on Manchester. In the year 1988, the team traded in getting Wayne Gretzky, their team captain. This leads to the victorious phasing of this franchise for raising the popularity of hockey in Los Angeles. Gretzky together with other hall of famer Rob Blake and Luc Robitaille led the LA Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals of 1993.
After the finals in 1993, the team encountered financial difficulties. They experienced bankruptcy (1995) and this was solved only when Edward P. Roski and Philip Anschutz acquire the franchise. They are able to overcome the mediocrity period when the team resurge and broke the six years drought playoff in NHL 2009-2010 season. This is made possible with the team’s forwards; Justin William, Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar; goaltender Jonathan Quick and defenseman, Drew Doughty.
