Former National Hockey League defenseman Al Langlois -- a three-time Stanley Cup winner from 1958-60 with the Montreal Canadiens and a Los Angeles resident -- will host the famed Stanley Cup on Thursday, September 8, from 3 – 5 p.m. at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. The Cup will be on the 2nd Level of the complex, above the Olympic-size Ice Rink, and will be open for viewing and for photos by fans.
"In recent years, each player who wins the Stanley Cup gets to take the Cup home for a day," said Kings Senior Vice President/General Manager Dave Taylor. "That wasn't the case when Al played, so now, some 45 years later, he is not only getting that unique opportunity but is sharing his special day with the hockey fans of Los Angeles."
Langlois, 70, played in 497 professional hockey games from 1955-67, including time in the NHL with the Canadiens, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins. A native of Quebec, Langlois has lived in Los Angeles since 1983 and completed his playing career in 1966-67 by playing one season with the Los Angeles Blades of the Western Hockey League. Langlois was also the last Bruins player to wear No. 4 until Bobby Orr donned the number in the late 60s.
