From the LA Kings:
Beginning this season the Los Angeles Kings will officially make the following changes as it pertains to team colors and uniforms, the team announced today:
—The Kings’ official team colors change to black, silver and white.
—The Kings’ primary home uniform switches to the black-silver-and-white uniform the club has worn as an alternate jersey the last two seasons.
—The Kings will wear a newly-created white version of this jersey for all road games this season.
Said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille: “There was an overwhelming sentiment from our fans and from our players that has led us to this change. Our fans really like the late 80s and early 90s era Kings uniforms which are very similar to this uniform. As a player, the colors give you an attitude and an edge. Dean Lombardi and I talked a lot about it with the players and they love it. We feel our fans believe in it as well.”
As part of the switch, the Kings’ former primary mark, a Crown featuring the color purple, now becomes the club’s alternate logo with one change – the Crown is now black and silver and features no purple. The Kings will wear these jerseys (unaltered from a year ago) for select home games.
