LOS ANGELES –
Former Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Donnelly
will be honored at STAPLES Center on Tuesday night as part of the club’s popular Legends Night Series presented by McDonald’s.
The Kings this season will also honor Donnelly and Jimmy Carson (March 7) at STAPLES Center after honoring Nick Nickson on November 10
On Tuesday night, the Kings will also wear their Vintage Jerseys as part of these special evenings, marking the only time the Kings will wear these sweaters at STAPLES Center during the 2015-16 season.
Donnelly played five seasons with the Kings from 1990-95. During his time with the Kings as a player he was a part of the Kings team that made the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 1993 and he was a member of the popular “All-American” forward line with Tony Granato and Corey Millen.
With the Kings he scored 29 goals on two occasions and at least 21 goals on three occasions. In 1991-92 he had 28 even-strength goals, sixth most in the NHL, as he finished fifth overall in team scoring that season. In 1992-93 he finished third on the Kings in goals scored and in 1993-94 he finished fourth.
Donnelly – the first NHL player in history to play for all three New York teams (Rangers, Islanders and Sabres) -- currently plays a key role in the Kings player development department.
Fans are encouraged to arrive to their seats early. The ceremony will be broadcast live on FOX Sports West before the game.
