Overview

The Year of the Los Angeles Kings: Celebrating the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions, is the only officially endorsed and licensed Championship book by the NHL and is the must-have Stanley Cup collectible for all fans of the game!

The Los Angeles Kings won their team's first Stanley Cup after a dominant postseason run that saw them go 16-4 while setting a record for Playoff wins on the road. They started the season as unlikely contenders, built a strong team over the season, and then battled their way through the two-month marathon that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In the end, the Kings' roster not only looked like a Cup champion, but played like one. Led by American-born captain Dustin Brown, the Kings dominated the postseason. Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar, complemented by newly acquired forwards Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, formed the core of a team that faced the best in the League, and won. But the emergence of Conn Smythe winner Jonathan Quick was the true key to the Los Angeles victory.

The Kings won 10 games in a row on the road and the first three games of every series despite never having home-ice advantage. They went 4-0 in overtime games and suffered only one loss away from the STAPLES Center. Under coach Darryl Sutter, another mid-season arrival, the Kings beat all comers and brought the Cup to the West Coast for the first time in their 45-year history.

The Year of the Los Angeles Kings celebrates the year-long journey to glory, from pre-season, through the regular season and every game of the playoffs. Augmented by more than 125 colour photos, this officially licensed book is the one keepsake any fan of the Kings, or the Stanley Cup, will want for 2012.

    This book was wonderful and definitely worth the cost, however,

    This book was wonderful and definitely worth the cost, however, I did not like the way it was shipped to me. I paid for a new book, but instead the book I received looked like it had been used multiple times before. There were scratches and wear and tear on the book. I was definitely not happy with that considering it was supposed to be a birthday gift for my brother.
