The Los Angeles Kings have fired head coach Darryl Sutter and GM Dean Lombardi.
"This was an extremely difficult decision and was made with an enormous amount of consideration for what we have accomplished in our past. But the present and future of our organization is the highest priority," said president and CEO of AEG (parent company of the Kings) Dan Beckerman. "Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for what Dean and Darryl have accomplished for the Kings franchise. They built this team and helped lead us to two Stanley Cup Championships and will forever be remembered as all-time greats in Kings history." Sutter had been with the Kings since 2011 and he ends his tenure with a 225-147-53 record. He and Lombardi also won two Stanley Cups together. Former Kings forward Luc Robitaille has been promoted to president and he'll be responsible for hockey and business operations. Rob Blake has now been named vice president and general manager of the team. Apr 10 - 8:45 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have not allowed a power play goal on the road since January 21.

Even the one on January 21 could be overlooked as John Tavares scored into the empty net. The Kings have been exceptional of late on the penalty kill as they have given up only four goals on their last 65 attempts while shorthanded, the best in the NHL. There are plenty of problems in Los Angeles but penalty killing is not one of them.

The Los Angeles Kings are doing well of late with their special teams.

The Kings have given up only three goals on their last 53 attempts while shorthanded and have scored nine goals on their last 19 power play attempts. That is how you win more hockey games.

The Los Angeles Kings are getting a bit of a breather, but then their schedule will be hectic for the remainder of the campaign.

After playing on Saturday, Los Angeles isn't scheduled to play again until Thursday. After that though, they'll conclude with 17 games over the span of just 32 days, including four back-to-back sets. Every point is critical for the Kings at this stage as they sit just one point behind in the Wild Card race. Unfortunately for the Kings, they've been heading in the wrong direction lately with their 4-7-2 record since Feb. 4.

Bob Miller has announced his retirement after being in broadcasting for 57 years.

Miller has been the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Kings since 1973. He's a recipient of the Foster Hewitt Award for outstanding contributions to hockey and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He's dealt with health issues recently as he underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2016 and suffered a mild stroke in January. He was hospitalized for days after his stroke and has been recovering since. "I think it's time to retire and hopefully have some quality time left with my family," Miller said. His intention is to be the announcer for the Kings' final two games of the regular season.

Darryl Sutter picked up his 216th win as coach of the Los Angeles Kings to move into first place all-time among Kings coaches.

He passed Andy Murray to move into first place. Congratulations to Darryl on the accomplishment.

Los Angeles has just three players with 10 or more goals this season.

By way of contrast, the Kings finished 2015-16 with 10 different players that reached the 10-goal mark and they were a middle-of-the-road team offensively. This season they're near the bottom of the league in goals scored per game (2.42) and their lack of offensive depth is a big part of that. Their players with at least 10 goals are Jeff Carter (29), Tanner Pearson (19), and Tyler Toffoli (10).
Feb 25 - 5:32 AM

The Los Angeles Kings are in the midst of a significant offensive slump.

Los Angeles has been shutout in back-to-back games, the Kings have gone three straight games without a goal in regulation time, and their last five-on-five goal was on Feb. 1. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Kings end that drought Thursday night against Florida, but it's part of a bigger issue. Los Angeles has averaged just 2.43 goals per game, which puts them in 24th place in the NHL.

Thursday marks the fifth anniversary of the Los Angeles Kings hiring Darryl Sutter.

That proved to be a turning point for the Kings as Sutter led them to a 25-13-11 record for the rest of the regular season and then to a Stanley Cup championship. That proved to be the first of two championships the Kings would win under Sutter. Lately things haven't gone as well as Los Angeles is 16-13-3 this season, but they've also been missing starting goaltender Jonathan Quick for nearly the entire season to date. After how successful Sutter's run with Los Angeles has been, it's interesting to think of how tentative this all initially was. "I spent my Christmas alone, sitting there by myself saying, ‘I don’t know about this,’" Sutter recalled. "And when I came it was basically for the year. I didn’t sign anything. I still had to deal with Calgary and the farm. I just wanted to make sure that I liked it and that when Wanda and Chris were able to come, they liked it."

With a victory over Detroit on Thursday, the Los Angeles Kings have earned 900 points under GM Dean Lombardi, which is a franchise high for a general manager.

Lombardi took over as the Kings' general manager in 2006. At the time the Kings hadn't made the playoffs since 2002, but of course they turned things around and went on to win the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. So far this season the Kings are barely clinging onto a playoff spot with their 15-12-2 record, but they haven't had the use of starting goalie Jonathan Quick for nearly the entire season to date.

The Los Angeles Kings won their 1,600th game in franchise history Wednesday.

The Kings are in their 50th year of existence in the NHL and that's quite the milestone they have reached. Congratulations to coach Darryl Sutter and the squad on the achievement.

Los Angeles' victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday was coach Darryl Sutter's 600th career victory.

Sutter is the 14th coach to ever reach that milestone. He's accomplished it over tenures with four squads as he won 110 games with Chicago, 192 with San Jose, 107 with Calgary, and now 191 with Los Angeles. Overall, Sutter has a 600-438-101-75 career record.

Darryl Sutter has officially agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

Los Angeles didn't reveal any of the terms of Sutter's deal, but it's reportedly worth more than $3 million annually and it's a two-year deal with an optional third season. This signing was already previously reported, but now it's official. Under Sutter's leadership, the Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. However, their last two seasons have ended on a sour note. In the regular season, the Kings have gone 186-112-45 under Sutter.

Darryl Sutter's new contract with the Los Angeles Kings is reportedly worth more than $3 million annually.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter has reportedly agreed to a contract extension.

That's not official yet, but Lisa Dillman went on to say that an announcement is expected as early as Friday, so we might not have to wait much longer. The Kings revealed less than a week ago that they had presented Sutter with a multi-year contract. The last two seasons have been largely disappointing for Los Angeles, but Sutter led them to championships in 2012 and 2014. He has a career 595-432-101-75 record.
