Written By: JCOL32
Championships: 1 (2011-12)
The NHL’s defending Stanley Cup champions, the Los Angeles Kings finally won their first championship this past season since joining the League in 1967. Before last season, the Kings had only advanced to the Stanley Cup once in their history.
The L.A. Kings will enter the 2013/2014 two years removed from their magical run as the 8th seed in the West, which saw them bring the cup back to Staples Center. Led by captain Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter, Anze Kopitar, Mike Richards, and Drew Doughty, the Kings will be a force to be wrecken with again this winter. Emerging star Slava Voynov will look to continue making strides and assert himself as one of the best young defenders in the league. Jonathan Quick will be back between the pipes and will surely but up to the task of taking the Kings back to the Final.
How to Play as the Kings:
The Kings are balanced throughout, with forwards such as Brown, Richards, Kopitar and Carter, Defensemenn like Voynov and Doughty, and arguably the best goaltender in the game, Jonathan Quick. Move the puck around and take advantage of the many opportunities you will get while playing as the Kings in NHL 14.
By winning the Stanley Cup in 2011-12, the Los Angeles Kings became the first ever 8th seeded team in North American professional sports history to win a championship.
