Luc Robataille: The Most Historic Run I've Ever Seen

Posted: Updated:

Justin Williams scored four minutes, 36 seconds into overtime as the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers, 3-2, in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight at Staples Center.

LA Kings President Of Business Operations, and former King left winger, Luc Robitaille came in to talk Game 1.

Fun facts about Luc Robataille: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player, and currently serves as President of business operations for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League. During his 19-season National Hockey League (NHL) career, Robitaille won the Stanley Cup in 2001–02 with the Detroit Red Wings, and played for the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers, but is most known for his fourteen seasons, over three different stints, with the Kings. He served as Kings team captain during the 1992–93 season (while Wayne Gretzky was injured) and for the final two games of the 2005–06 season. Robitaille retired after the 2005–06 season as the highest-scoring left winger in NHL history and the holder of several Kings franchise records, along with numerous Kings playoff records.

2) Robitaille struggled in his first season back in Los Angeles, scoring only 16 goals in an injury-shortened 1997–98 season. Robitaille returned to his All-Star form, scoring no fewer than 36 goals and had the best stats of his career after his first stint with the Kings during those three seasons. On January 7, 1999, Robitaille scored his 500th career goal in a 4-2 victory at the Great Western Forum against the Buffalo Sabres.

3) During the 2000-01 season, Robitaille netted 37 goals and tallied 88 points and helped lead the Kings to their first playoff appearance since 1998. During the 2000–01 playoffs, Robitaille helped the seventh-seed Kings to a first round upset of the Detroit Red Wings, and his team took the eventual Stanley Cup-winning Colorado Avalanche to seven games in the conference semifinals. Robitaille was named a second team all-star, his postseason team honour since 1993. Robitaille turned down a one year deal with a substantial pay cut by Kings GM Dave Taylor.
