In the fourth round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, the LA Kings selected Lubomir Visnovsky, a defenseman from Topolcany, Slovakia.
He had a break-out rookie season and later went on to represent the Kings at the 2007 NHL All-Star Game. In Kings franchise history, he still ranks ranks top five in points, power-play goals and game-winning goals among defenseman.
So, the Kings were thrilled to honor him in their annual Legends Night series.
Visnovsky played for four NHL teams, including the Kings, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks and the New York Islanders. He also competed at the Olympic in four different occasions (1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010).
