Parade for Kings set for Thursday
Parade for Kings set for Thursday

The Los Angeles Kings and their fans will celebrate the first Stanley Cup in the franchise's 45-year history on Thursday with a parade and a celebratory rally at Staples Center.

The festivities will be shown live on the NHL Network beginning at 2 PM ET. In the Los Angeles area, the parade can be seen on Fox Sports West.

The parade will begin at noon PT at the corner of Figueroa and West 5th Streets, with Los Angeles' traditional parade of championship teams down Figueroa to Staples Center. Players and their families, coaches, staff, broadcasters, alumni, the Ice Crew, mascot Bailey and other VIPs will ride on double-decker buses and other specially decorated vehicles along with the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe Trophy and the Clarence Campbell Cup.

The parade is expected to last 30-45 minutes.

The Kings will produce a special "Championship Rally" inside Staples Center, scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. The 60-minute ticketed event will include specially-produced video highlights from the season, introductions of the entire team, coaching staff and executives with speeches and reactions from many of the players in addition to special presentations and surprises.

Tickets are free, but priority will be given to season ticket members and suite and premier seat owners. Access to any remaining tickets for the general public will begin at 6 p.m. PT on Tuesday and will be available via www.lakings.com/parade on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of four tickets per order.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
