9) Butch Goring

Goring had 275 goals and 659 points in 736 games for Los Angeles, Goring played on some bad teams but he was a solid player.

8) Rob Blake

Blake’s prolific statistics in L.A.: 161 goals, 494 points in 805 games, ranked seventh in total points while playing for the Kings. He was also fourth in PIMs. A lot of people hated him, but you can’t deny how good of a player he was.

7) Anze Kopitar

On May 5, 2021, Kopitar recorded hisย 1,000th career point, becoming the 91st player to reach the mark. Kopitar was a huge part of 2 Stanley Cup-winning teams and should move farther up this list by the end of his career.

6) Bernie Nicholls

Nicholls amassed 328 goals and 758 points in 602 games with Los Angeles, including an incredible 1988-89 campaign where he tallied 70 goals and 150 points, finishing second and fourth in the league in those categories, respectively. He earned two All-Star trips while with the Kings.

5) Rogie Vachon

Vachon played in a vastly different era of the NHL and still managed 2.24 goals against average in 1974-75. He had 171 wins while in Los Angeles. For my money, Vachon is the greatest Kings Goaltender of all time,

4) Dave Taylor

Taylor played the second-most games in team history (1,111, behind Brown) and was third in goals (431), third in points (1,069), and second in PIMs (1,589).

3) Luc Robitaille

First in team goals with 557 and second in points (1,154). He topped 30 goals a remarkable twelve times, reaching 63 in 1992-93. He was a fan-favorite in his time in Los Angeles and was one of the great left-wingers in NHL history.

2) Wayne Gretzky

Statistically, of course, nobody really compared to Gretzky, who registered 918 points in 539 games in Los Angeles. But this signing got attention all over the world for the LA Kings organization. Gretzky would take the Kings all the way to the Stanley Cup finals in 1993.

1) Marcel Dionne

Dionne played nearly 12 full seasons in L.A., amassing 550 goals and 1,307 points in 921 games. Dionne routinely finished with 40+ goals and 100+ points, leading the league with 137 points in 1979-80. Dionne got to play in very few playoff games but managed 21 goals and 45 points in 49 of them, all but six with the Kings.
