Luc Robitaille
President, Alternate Governor

Luc Robitaille - a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, the all-time Kings leader in goals scored and the second highest goal scoring left wing in NHL history - is in his fourth season as Kings President as he directs and oversees all hockey and business operations, and his 14th season overall in the Kings front office after working the previous 10 years as President, Business Operations. He played 19 seasons in the NHL, including 14 with the Kings, and won a Stanley Cup in 2002.

In April 2017, Robitaille was promoted to President on the same day Rob Blake was promoted to Vice President and General Manager under Robitaille. Robitaille also is an Alternate Governor with the Kings.   

Since his playing career ended, Robitaille, has had a tremendous impact on the Kings in the front office. For the Kings Business Operations department, he has been effective in the areas of Sponsorship Sales and Renewal and Fan and Customer Relations as revenue has more than doubled and the Kings won their first two Stanley Cups. Additionally, the team enjoyed a record sellout streak of 297 consecutive home games including 262 straight regular season contests. The Kings were named the Sports Team of the Year by the Sports Business Journal in 2015.  

Under Fan Development, Robitaille has been a driving force to grow the game in Southern California including The Little Kings program and The LA Kings High School Hockey program. Robitaille has helped develop the Kings Care Foundation's principles, values and strategic direction. He is on the Board of Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Ronald McDonald House, and he and his wife Stacia are the co-founders of a non-profit organization, Echoes of Hope.

He has been a driving force behind unique events including the 2010 NHL Entry Draft at STAPLES Center and the Kings hosted the 2017 NHL All-Star Game at STAPLES Center as part of the club's 50th Anniversary Celebration. In 2014 the Kings hosted the Anaheim Ducks in a regular-season outdoor NHL game at Dodger Stadium in front of 54,099 fans. The Kings also played outdoor hockey again in 2015 at Levi's Stadium and in 2020 at the U.S. Air Force Academy.  

Robitaille also played for Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers and Detroit. Among NHL left wings, he has recorded the most points (1,394) and assists (726). He has the second most goals (668) - a mark he set in a Kings uniform before being surpassed by Alexander Ovechkin - and he holds the record for most points by a left wing in a single season (125) in 1992-93. He is 13th in overall NHL goal scoring, 22nd in points and he is the only left wing in NHL history to record eight consecutive 40-goal seasons (all in a Kings uniform).

With the Kings, Robitaille ranks third all-time in games played (1,077), second in points (1,154) and fifth in assists (597). In 2006, Robitaille set the franchise record for goals when his 551st goal as a King surpassed former teammate Marcel Dionne. In 1,077 total regular season games as a King, Robitaille had 557 goals. He played in eight NHL All-Star Games with the Kings.  

Robitaille, 55 (2/17/66), was selected by the Kings in the ninth round (171st overall) of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. As a rookie, the Montreal native became the first (and only) Kings player to win the Calder Memorial Trophy and he was named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team in 1987. Later he helped lead the Kings to the club's first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 1993 as Robitaille set NHL records for the most goals (63) by a left wing.

Robitaille would go on to reach other milestones in a Kings uniform, including his 500th career goal in 1999 and his 1,000th game as a King in 2004. Robitaille became the fifth player to have his jersey retired by the team. In 2009, Robitaille was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, in 2014 he was named a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee, and three years later he named one of the NHL's 100 greatest players.

Luc and Stacia have two sons, Steven and Jesse. They reside in Santa Monica.
