Rob Blake Will Have His Sweater Retired By The Los Angeles Kings

LOS ANGELES – Former Los Angeles Kings captain/defenseman and current club executive Rob Blake will have his No. 4 jersey retired by the Kings as part of a special pregame ceremony at STAPLES Center this Saturday, January 17, prior to the Kings-Ducks game.

Blake – who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in November – will become the sixth Kings player to be so honored by the organization, joining Luc Robitaille (#20 / 2007), Wayne Gretzky (#99 / 2002), Dave Taylor (#18 / 1995), Marcel Dionne (#16 / 1990) and Rogie Vachon (#30 / 1985)

“It is an honor to be included with the former great LA King players who have their Jersey’s retired. I have always felt LA was a special place to play and it was and is a tremendous privilege to put on an LA Kings jersey,” said Blake.
