NHL Burning Questions: Los Angeles Kings

This is the latest file in THN.com’s ongoing “Three Burning Questions” series, in which we’re asking every NHL team three notable questions ahead of the 2022-23 regular season. In this special file, we ask three burning questions about the Los Angeles Kings.


1. Can LA continue its uptrend? After failing to make the playoffs in the previous three seasons — and missing the postseason five times in the previous seven years — the Kings finally had a respectable year in 2021-22, finishing third in the Pacific Division and nearly knocking out the Western Conference -Finalist Edmonton Oilers in a seven-game first-round showdown. The progress validated the direction GM Rob Blake took in taking the franchise. But this is a “What have you done for me lately?” league, which means there will be a significant setback in Los Angeles if the Kings don’t build on that success this season.
