True Kings: Los Angeles Kings
The Los Angeles Kings are a professional ice hockey team based in Los Angeles, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The team was founded on February 9, 1966, when Jack Kent Cooke was awarded an NHL expansion franchise for Los Angeles, becoming one of the six teams that began play as part of the 1967 NHL expansion. The Los Angeles Kings called The Forum in Inglewood, California (a suburb of Los Angeles), their home for thirty-two years until they moved to theStaples Center in Downtown Los Angeles to start the 1999–2000 season.
Los Angeles Kings: Win Stanley Cup Again
In the 2011 offseason, the Los Angeles Kings acquired Mike Richards and prospect Rob Bordson from the Philadelphia Flyers for Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and a 2012 second round pick, by personal request, traded Ryan Smyth to the Edmonton Oilers for Colin Fraser and a 7th round pick in the2012 NHL Entry Draft, and signed Simon Gagne from the Tampa Bay Lightning to play alongside former Philadelphia Flyer teammate Mike Richards.
The Los Angeles Kings faced the New Jersey Devils in the Finals and defeated them in six games to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. With the Game 6 victory occurring on home ice at Staples Center, the Kings became the first team since the 2007 Anaheim Ducksto win the Stanley Cup on home ice, and the second Californian NHL team to do so. Goaltender Jonathan Quick was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player during the playoffs, and soon signed a ten-year contract extension on June 28, 2012.
