Kings promote their 3rd jersey to primary uniform, drop purple from team colours

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Los Angeles Kings are changing their jerseys and dropping purple from their team colours for the upcoming season.

Kings executive Luc Robitaille says fans have been clamouring for the club to return to the black, silver and white colour scheme adopted in 1988.

So Los Angeles’ black third jerseys worn during the past two seasons are becoming their primary home jerseys. The black jersey features a shield with a smaller crown topped by the letters “LA.”

The Kings are making a white version of the same jersey to wear in every road game this season.

The “LA” crest also is the Kings’ new primary logo. The crown will remain a secondary Kings logo, but it won’t feature purple, which was added to the Kings’ colour scheme in 1998.
