Do you still want more Lappy in your life?

There’s no denying Ian Laperriere was one of the most popular players in Kings history and remains beloved by fans even now.

Earlier today he was honored by the team in a pre-game ceremony (watch here). But, just take a look at a few of his stats and achievements:

– Played 15 full seasons in the NHL with the Kings Blues, Rangers, Avalanche and Flyers, and nine of those seasons were spent in Los Angeles.

– Recorded 336 points (121 goals, 215 assists) and 1,956 penalty minutes overall in 1,083 career regular season NHL games. He also appeared in 67 career playoff games.

– Had 165 points with the Kings (61 goals, 104 assists) and 1,017 penalty minutes in 595 games. He also appeared in 28 playoff games with LA.

– Fifth all-time in Kings history in penalty minutes (one of five Kings to have more than 1,000 PIM).

– Led the Kings in penalty minutes three times (1999-00, 2001-02 and 2002-03).

– Served as an alternate captain during his tenure with the Kings.

– Awards: Voted the Kings Best Defensive Player three times (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99), Voted the Kings Most Popular Player three times (1999-00, 2000-01, 2002-03), Voted the Kings Most Inspirational Player three times (1996-97, 2000-01, 2002-03), Won Kings Community Service Award in 2003-04.

He’s also appeared on MayorsManor dozens of times since leaving Los Angeles, providing his unique brand of straight-forward insight. Here’s a small sample:
