LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Kelly Hrudey, who played goaltender for the Los Angeles Kings from 1989-1996, will be honored by the team in a ceremony before tonight’s game at Staples Center against the Calgary Flames.
Acquired in a 1989 trade with the New York Islanders, Hrudey made the most saves in Kings history, 10,151, and is second in victories. He led the team in victories in six seasons, tied with Rogie Vachon for most in franchise history, and in goals against average for five seasons, second most in team history.
Hrudey was named as the team’s most valuable player in the 1991-92 and 1994-95 seasons, the unsung hero in the 1993-94 season and as the most popular player and most inspirational player in the 1994-95 season.
All fans in attendance will receive Hrudey-style bandanas.
Tonight’s game is the second of an abbreviated two-game Kings Legends Night Series during the lockout-shortened season when the team will wear its vintage purple and gold jerseys.
