The Kings will honor Luc Robitaille this season by unveiling his statue in Star Plaza at the Staples Center on Mar. 7, 2015.

Robitaille has done a fine job as the club's president of business operations since 2007, although his 1394 points over 1431 NHL games probably had something to do with it. Robitaille played fourteen seasons with Los Angeles over three different stints and holds numerous Kings records. Lucky Luc retired as the highest scoring left winger in NHL history.

Luc Robitaille has been named to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Robitaille had 668 goals (tenth all-time) and 1,394 points in his great career, not bad for someone who was drafted in the ninth round, 171st overall in the 1984 Entry Draft. Congratulations to Lucky Luc on the admission to hockey's hallowed Hall.

Luc Robitaille will be named the President of the Los Angeles Kings on Friday, in charge of business operations.

Robitaille, who retired at the conclusion of the 2005/06 season, will work hand-in-hand with Kings GM Dean Lombardi and the hope is that they can turn the franchise around. "This is a move aimed to help make the Kings the best organization in the NHL," Robitaille said. "There's always been the talk that the Kings weren't too concerned about winning because AEG (owners of the Kings)was taking care of them, [but now] the organization will be on its own. We will have it where it will be a Kings-only focus." It is tougher now in Los Angeles due to the success of the Ducks and the Kings are responding.

Luc Robitaille will have his number retired by the Kings in January.

"Having your sweater retired by your team is an incredible honor," Robitaille said in a statement Monday. "When I first came to L.A. more than 20 years ago, I never would have imagined this happening. This honor means so much to myself and my family, and I am very honored and humbled indeed." He retired at the end of this past season as the highest scoring left wing in NHL history with 668 goals and 1394 points in 1,431 regular-season games. His next stop will be the NHL Hall-of-Fame.

Luc Robitaille played his last game in front of his Los Angeles fans on Saturday.

It was an emotional time for Robitaille who was cheered repeated throughout the game and especially at its conclusion. The outburst lingered after the game, with fans cheering Robitaille back onto the ice one last time to say "goodnight and goodbye.""That's the only thing I could think of to say," Robitaille said. "I can't believe with the traffic that they stayed around to the end [of the postgame ceremonies]. That was overwhelming." Robitaille announced his retirement plans on Tuesday and Saturday was the Kings last home game this season.

Veteran winger Luc Robitaille was a healthy scratch for Tuesday night's 6-2 loss to Anaheim.

It was the second game in a row that the 40-year-old forward has been forced to sit out. Bench Robitaille until further notice.

Luc Robitaille scored the shootout winner as Los Angeles edged St. Louis 2-1 on Saturday.

Robitaille had the only shootout marker as Mathieu Garon stoned the Blues during the final portion of the game. While he was the hero for Los Angeles tonight, Robitaille has not produced for the Kings, and with only 14 goals and 23 points on the year, he is not someone to be considered for your fantasy lineup.

Luc Robitaille became the Los Angeles Kings all time leading scorer as he had a hat trick in leading the Los Angeles Kings to a 8-6 win over Atlanta.

Robitaille now has 552 goals as a member of the Los Angeles Kings surpassing Marcel Dionne who had 550 goals during his career in Los Angeles. Jeff Giuliano scored twice and Dustin Brown, Tim Kostopoulos and Mattias Norstrom added single goals for the Kings. Jason Labarbera stopped 33 shots for the win. Marian Hossa with two, Ilya Kovalchuk, Patrik Stefan, Eric Boulton and Kozlov replied for the Thrashers as Mike Dunham allowed 7 goals in 35 shots to take the loss.

Luc Robitaille has been averaging over 18 minutes a game the past four games.

"I feel confident out there," Robitaille said. "We have guys out and everyone needs to pick up their game. I've been getting minutes, and our line has been getting a lot of chances. When you get chances, the puck is going to go in." Robitaille is regaining his touch after fracturing his ankle and then being benched this season. He returned to the lineup when injuries struck the Kings and has played well of late. He is worthy of a pickup in deeper pools.

Luc Robitaille scored twice to lead the Kings to a 4-0 win over the Coyotes last night.

The 19-year-veteran had gone 14 games without scoring before last night's contest. Craig Conroy and Joe Corvo each registered two points for the winners, while Mathieu Garon turned aside 29 Coyote shots to post his first LA shutout.

Luc Robitaille thinks him game is starting to come around.

Robitaille returned to the Kings lineup with the injury to Jeremy Roenick. Robitaille, who has one goal in 12 games since returning from a broken bone in his leg, played only 9 minutes 22 seconds against Calgary on Wednesday. He took four penalties, three in the first period. Against Edmonton on Friday, Robitaille played 12 minutes 31 seconds and nearly scored the game-tying goal in the final minutes."I still think I can play, especially under the new rules," Robitaille after the Edmonton game. "If I play with guys who can hang on to the puck, there's four more feet in the offensive zone. The last two games I've felt better, and Andy gave me chances [against Edmonton]. If I keep getting this ice time, the puck will go in." Start thinking about putting Robitaille back in your lineup as he may be on the verge of breaking out.

Luc Robitaille should be back in the Kings' lineup tonight.

With Jeremy Roenick sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks, the door is open for Robitaille to get back on the ice after being a healthy scratch for the past 3 games. Given his lackluster performance to date, perhaps the benching will motivate the veteran to improve his production. We shall see.
