The Los Angeles Kings are One of the Best
The Los Angeles Kings are one of the more established expansion teams in the NHL. The Kings were founded in 1967, and unlike a lot of other professional sports teams, the Kings have stayed in LA without any name changes. Tickets to Los Angeles Kings games are exciting, and you can be sure that this is one team that will not disappoint you. Sports fans of all types, and especially hockey lovers, love the Kings and their quick play action.
The Kings played their first season in ’67, but didn’t really see a lot of success until the late ‘80s when their team picked up some great players. They went to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993, but lost to the Montreal Canadiens. The Kings have won two Stanley Cup Finals recently. One in 2012 over the New Jersey Devils, and then again in 2014 over the New York Rangers. This string of recent successes has helped the team to become even more popular than ever.
The Kings have had some great players over the years. Hall of Famers like Marcel Dionne, Luc Robitaille, and Rob Blake each played a good portion of their careers with Los Angeles. Even Wayne Gretzky spent some time on the team, playing between 1988 and 1996 as a King. Today’s team might not have anyone at these levels right now, but there are some young athletes on the team, and only time will tell what levels of greatness they will achieve.
Currently, the Kings play their home games at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Tickets to Los Angeles Kings games are hot items, and LA is a big city, so it’s not unheard of, or even unusual for tickets to sell out. If you’re going to be in LA for a game, or you want to catch the Kings while they are out on the road, you’ll need to move fast if you want good seats. If you do have trouble, don’t give up. There are a lot of good sites out there where you can buy tickets. We recommend starting with SeatGeek or StubHub, but these are certainly not your only choices.
