There has never been a King with the last name that started with an "X," while just one (Unger, Garry) has started with the letter "U" and two with the letter "Y," (Yushkevich, Dmitry and Yachmenev, Vitali). There have been four Kings with "Z" last names (Zeiler, John, Zhitnik, Alexei, Zizka, Tomas, Zmolek, Doug), four Kings with "I" last names (Inglis, William, Irvine, Ted, Isaksson, Ulf, Ivanans, Raitis) and four Kings with "O" last names (O'Donnell, Sean, O'Dwyer, William, O'Sullivan, Patrick, Olczyk, Edward) while one of each letter (Zeiler, Ivanans and O'Donnell) are currently playing for the Kings.
Prior to Dec. 6, 2007, there was only one King ever with a "Q" last name (Quinn, Dan) in the Kings 40-year history up until that point. On that date, however, Quick, Jonathan made his NHL debut and has since been joined by Quincey, Kyle, so there have been two "Qs" in the last two years after having just one in the first 40.
The most common is the letter "M" with 55, "B" with 53 and "S" with 51.See links below.
