Final Preview: Kings New 50th Anniversary Jersey

The wait is almost over.

Hockey season is nearly upon us. You can all breathe now.

After two largely dismal seasons – at least from a playoff perspective – the Kings will be entering the upcoming campaign with more on-ice questions than in nearly a decade. Sure, they have three of perhaps the best 20 players in the entire world in Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, and Jonathan Quick. Yet, the supporting cast looks thin in many areas, especially the blueline. Additionally, there are too many roster players under contract at the moment, coming off a free agent class that was awfully reminiscent of the summer they added Kyle Calder, Ladislav Nagy, Michal Handzus, and Tom Preissing.

On the flip side, this is still largely the same team that finished just one point out of first place in the Pacific Division this past April and they are once again among the leaders when you look at odds to win the 2017 Stanley Cup.

Equally exciting to Rookie Camp opening up this weekend is what the team has in store for fans in the coming months. To celebrate their 50th NHL season, the Kings have a myriad of activities planned, as we’ve covered in previous posts:

To help get things started, below is our latest mock up of what we expect the team’s new jersey to look like. While team sources have been on near-double secret lockdown surrounding the final design, this comp is based on our latest intel (and courtesy of MM artist Justin Cox). Expect the official version to be unveiled this Tuesday, as part of a season ticket holder event at Staples Center.
