"He has good days and bad days like anybody who's 86 [years old], but overall he's heading in the right direction really every day, a little bit better.

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."
