Congratulations to Anze Kopitar who passed long-time LA Kings great, Dave Taylor for second all-time in games played for the Kings. The former 11th-overall draft pick in 2005 has been both durable and lethal for the Kings over the past decade-and-a-half.
Kopitar's accomplishment of moving into second all-time in games played for the Kings is just latest in him moving up the ranks in franchise history. The Kings captain also ranks fourth in goals (341), third in assists (649), fourth in points (990), third in game-winning goals (55) and has lead the Kings in scoring 12 years (including this year).
In his 1,112 games, Kopitar has recorded 990 points (341-649=990), won two Selke Trophies, A Lady Byng Memorial Trophy and most notably two Stanley Cups.
Kopitar now trails just one man for the most games played in franchise history; his linemate Dustin Brown (1,220 games) by 108 games.
