Los Angeles Kings Fantasy Camp: Doing The Right Thing To Start 2010

LOS ANGELES — Anyone with dreams of hitting the ice with Los Angeles Kings greats Luc Robitaille, Bernie Nicholls, Butch Goring, Marty McSorley and other Kings alumni can have those dreams come true and start the New Year off right, helping those in need, by participating in the Los Angeles Kings Fantasy Camp (for adults 18 or older only), scheduled for January 14-16, 2010, at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California and Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.

Proceeds from the fantasy camp benefit the Los Angeles Kings Alumni Association and the Kings Care Foundation.

Robitaille, the highest scoring left wing in National Hockey League history who won the Stanley Cup in 2007, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on November 9, 2009. He currently serves as the Kings’ President/Business Operations.

Nicholls, who scored a Kings season record seventy goals and finished second on the club with a career high 150 points in the 1988-89 season, ranks fifth all-time in Kings career scoring with 758 points (327 goals, 431 assists for 758 points) in 602 games.

Goring, one of the first fan favorites here in Los Angeles, was virtually unstoppable on breakaways and went on to win four consecutive Stanley Cups with the New York Islanders during their dynasty years (1979-80 to 1982-83).

McSorley, who played in 472 games with the Kings, is the all-time franchise leader in penalty minutes (1,846) and ranks fifth all-time with Kings in points recorded by a defenseman.
