LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings will continue their annual tradition of presenting "THE SHIRTS OFF THEIR BACKS" to 26 lucky fans, chosen at random from the crowd, with authentic game-worn jerseys as part of a special post-game ceremony for Fan Appreciation Night following the Kings-Calgary Flames game on Saturday at STAPLES Center. At the conclusion of the game, which starts at 7:30 p.m., those 26 fans will be escorted onto the ice and each King, one at a time, will remove their jersey, autograph it and present the jersey to one of the winners.
In addition, the Kings on Saturday will name their 2005-06 Award Winners:
As voted by the media: Most Valuable Player ("Bill Libby Memorial Award") Best Newcomer ("Mark Bavis Memorial Award") Outstanding Defenseman Best Defensive Player

The Kings then travel on Sunday to San Jose where they take on the Sharks on Monday at 7:30 p.m. to conclude their season.
