To honor his 25 years of service to the Los Angeles Kings, the club at STAPLES Center will hold "Jim Fox Day" on February 11 as part of the Kings-Chicago contest.
"Jim Fox and Nick Nickson are a major part of Kings history and we wanted to recognize their long-serving accomplishments in front of our fans," said Kings President, Business Operations Shawn Hunter. "Their commitment to our organization is clear, and their excellent work game-in-and-game-out on our radio and television broadcasts in particular are shining and professional examples of their passion for our team."
Fox initially joined the Kings when the club selected him in the first-round (10th overall) in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. He enjoyed a stellar 10-year playing career with the Kings and ranks seventh on the Kings' all-time scoring list with 478 points. Since his retirement as a player, he worked as the Kings' director of community relations and is now is his 16th year as the Kings television color commentator, joining Bob Miller in the booth for Kings broadcasts on FSN West.
