One of the most famous players in Los Angeles Kings history, Luc Robitaille, had his number 20 retired on January 20th. He was only the fifth player in King’s franchise history to have a number retired.
It follows a storied career of the man who is number 10 on the NHL’s scoring chart and the number 1 all time scorer among left wings.
He also set the all time scoring record for the Kings, and was named rookie of the year in 1987.
It was a fitting tribute for Robitaille, who said, “It is the greatest honor I have ever received.”
Among those in attendance were:Bob Berry, Jimmy Carson, Mike Donnelly, Steve Duchesne, Daryl Evans, Stephane Fiset, Jim Fox, Garry Galley, Butch Goring, Wayne Gretzky, Bob Kudelski, Jari Kurri, Marty McSorley, Barry Melrose, Jay Miller, Bernie Nicholls, Larry Playfair, Larry Robinson, Rogie Vachon and Jay Wells.
