The Los Angeles Kings today unveiled a special 50th Anniversary Monument outside STAPLES Center1:34 AM
The LA Kings have a rich and storied history in the city of Los Angeles.
For 50 years what was once a franchise seeking to find a foothold in a vast and diverse marketplace is now a leader within the NHL culture and a franchise known for stability, innovation and success.
The Kings hockey culture is rich with pride, passion and a sense of family.
Over this half century, the Kings have had a multitude of ups and the downs.
Through winning and losing seasons they have always strived for excellence.
With a tradition of star players, and a devoted fan-base, the quest to reach the ultimate goal of the Stanley Cup was seemingly out of reach until recently, as they have gained a new confidence with a Championship team for their fans and this great city to be proud.
This 50th Anniversary Monument is a gift to Los Angeles and is dedicated to all the passionate and devoted individuals who have supported the Kings either as fans, players, employees or partners.
Various legends were selected to represent the eras of LA Kings hockey.
The materials of bronze, granite and glass were chosen to showcase permanence, a milestone in any sports organization’s history.
At the base of the 12-foot high monument, key moments from the past are laser etched in granite.
