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.
