50 Years In LA: The Building of the "Fabulous Forum"

by Emily Hummel @hummeline / LAKings.com

With the 50th anniversary of the Kings this coming year, we wanted to take the opportunity to take a closer look at the city of Los Angeles-the city the Kings have called home their whole life. We'll be digging into various aspects of the city and how it's grown and evolved over the years, from music to sports to architecture. For our first piece, we're taking a look at the building of the "Fabulous Forum" in Inglewood, where the Kings found their first home.

It began with the first expansion in NHL history in 1967. The '67 expansion was a much bigger risk than we tend to realize. The NHL at the time had not expanded beyond a small area of the Northwestern United States and into Canada, and a team in Los Angeles would be the southern-most team, as well as a place where it doesn't actually snow in the winter.

In honor of the franchise's 50th anniversary, this is the first in a series of 50 forgotten Kings stories. Going beyond the classic, well-worn tales, this series is for the die-hard fans…who thought they knew everything about their favorite team. 

"The bidding for Los Angeles' major league hockey franchise is beginning to look like a rush for the last knothole at a nudist camp." (Roberts, Rich. "NHL Interest Sky High-$312,625 Worth." Independent Press-Telegram, January 16, 1966.)

Jonathan Quick hoping history repeats itself

Team USA goalie out to join Mike Richter as World Cup winner

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

TORONTO -- Jonathan Quick wanted to be like Mike Richter growing up. He had a poster of Richter on his bedroom wall in Hamden, Connecticut, about two hours from Madison Square Garden. He was 8 years old when the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup in 1994, and he had a few friends over to eat ice pops and watch Game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks.

It would be wrong to say Quick was glued to the television when Richter helped Team USA win the World Cup of Hockey in 1996.
