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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
