Kings enjoy second White House visit in three years

Monday, 02.02.2015 / 4:38 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

WASHINGTON -- The Los Angeles Kings renewed acquaintances with President Barack Obama on Monday at the White House, where they were honored for winning the Stanley Cup championship last year.

The Kings were joined on stage in the East Room and on a pre-ceremony tour and gathering with President Obama by members of the Los Angeles Galaxy, who won the MLS Cup last season. President Obama also honored the Kings and Galaxy for winning their respective league championships on March 26, 2013.

Both franchises are owned by AEG.

"As a Chicago fan I'm a little resentful, you guys have an embarrassment of riches," President Obama said during his seven-minute speech. "Today feels like Groundhog Day. If you're feeling a little déjà vu you're not alone. Two years ago we had the Galaxy and the Kings here together. So if you see Bill Murray playing the piano in the foyer you know something weird is going on, and we're probably going to do this again."

The Los Angeles Kings visit the White House on Monday to celebrate winning the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons in 2014. But entering the week the Kings are on the outside of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, three points behind the Calgary Flames for the second Western Conference wild-card spot. But the Kings always save their best for the end.

Some players to keep an eye on that traditionally turn up their play as the season goes on are center Anze Kopitar and defenseman Alec Martinez. Kopitar led the Kings in points in games played after Feb. 1 in 2013-14 (27 points in 26 games) and 2011-12 (32 points in 32 games). Martinez had a combined 25 points in games after Feb. 1 in the Kings' championship seasons.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
