The ceremony, which recognized an official NHL Milestone and will be hosted by Kings Hall of Fame Radio Play-by-Play Announcer Nick Nickson, will air live on FOX Sports West and the LA Kings Audio Network.

Carter became the 338th player in NHL history to reach the 1,000 games played plateau and the 23rd to do so while skating in a Kings sweater. All time he is the 57th player to have played for the Kings to reach the milestone. Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar have each played in more than 1,000 games.
