LA Kings Unveil Forum Blue and Gold 'Reverse Retro' Jersey

In collaboration with the NHL and adidas, the new jersey pays tribute to two fan favorites

by LA Kings @LAKings / LAKings.com

The anticipated league-wide Reverse Retro jersey's are here at last! With the collaboration of the NHL and adidas, the new jerseys pay tribute to the rich history of the LA Kings.

This is the first time in League history that all 31 teams have participated in a League-wide alternate jersey program. adidas worked closely with the NHL® and each team to design a Reverse Retro jersey representing unique and historical moments in each club's history, while refreshing the color and design combination for an all-new presentation.

Tweet from @LAKings: Details from the past. Remixed for the future. @adidashockey #ReverseRetro coming soon pic.twitter.com/8j8Pe6SuZG

First, the crest of the jersey pays homage to the 1989-1990 season when Wayne Gretzky broke the NHL record for most points ever, passing Gordie Howe's 1,850 points. Gretzky did so on Oct. 15, 1989 with a third period goal against the Edmonton Oilers, backhanding a puck in on the Kings current Goalie Coach, Bill Ranford. 

The second tribute to the Kings Reverse Retro jersey, completing the new look is the Kings original colors of LA Kings Forum Blue and Gold. Both the design and colors of the uniform commend the Kings history in the 60's and 70's, while also highlighting a color combination favorite among the Los Angeles sports fans.

"We love the Kings jerseys and we feel our fans will as well as we hear so often from them that they enjoy when we go back and revisit our history," said Kings President and Hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille.

Chris Kingsley shares his personal journey through prostate cancer and why he's growing a mustache this November

by Chris Kingsley @LAKings / LAKings.com

I had been waiting for it. 

For ten years, I had been tracking my Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) levels. As a medical professional, I knew I needed to be proactive since my father had prostate cancer.

So, when I reported to the team's physical in September 2018 and found out that my PSA level was high, I wasn't that surprised. 

"Here we go," I said to myself.

A Tribute to My Hero, Travis Roy

by Jack Jablonski / LAKings.com

Growing up in Minnesota as an avid hockey player with dreams of playing in the NHL, I vividly remember learning about the potential dangers of playing this great game.

I first learned of Travis Roy's injury and story in the eighth grade when I told my father if I were to make it to college hockey, Boston University would be one of my top choices. Not long after looking into the program's history, Travis Roy's story surfaced. As a 14-year-old, I had yet to endure any legitimate injuries, but I couldn't help realizing how precious life and the ability to play the game that I loved was after reading his story...
