A statue honoring LA Kings' broadcasting legend and Hockey Hall of Famer Bob Miller in Star Plaza outside of STAPLES Center and a permanent banner inside of STAPLES Center will both be unveiled this Saturday as part of "Bob Miller Celebration Day."

Both the banner and the statue will be featured in two special pre-game ceremonies before that night's Kings-Ducks game. 

Fans attending that night's Kings-Ducks game are encouraged to be in their seats at 7:15 p.m. to watch the ceremony, via delay upon the conclusion of pregame player warm-ups inside STAPLES Center (the ceremony will also be available live on the FOX Sports Go app). 

All fans in attendance for that night's game will receive a special Bob Miller BOBblehead presented by FOX Sports West.

The banner unveiling will begin prior to the start of the game and will feature several special guests, including Kings legends.

Miller will also become the first non-player that the Kings will honor with a permanent banner inside STAPLES Center as he joins Luc Robitaille, Wayne Gretzky, Rob Blake, Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Rogie Vachon. 

Miller's statue will be the third Kings' statue in STAPLES Center's Star Plaza joining fellow Hockey Hall of Famers Robitaille and Gretzky, and will become the only statue of a hockey broadcaster at a current NHL arena. 

Created by renowned sculptors/artists Julie Rotblatt Amrany and Omri Amrany, the statue will join other iconic sculptures of celebrated Los Angeles sports superstars including Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Jerry West, Chick Hearn, Oscar De La Hoya, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal, Gretzky and Robitaille in STAPLES Center's Star Plaza along Chick Hearn Ct.
