This panorama, taken by James Blakeway, highlights the Los Angeles Kings as they play for a win. The Kings were established in 1967 and were one of six new teams that doubled the size of the NHL® from the Original Six™ franchises to 12. The Kings split their first season between Long Beach and Los Angeles before settling in Inglewood, where they played for 32 years. At the beginning of the 1999-2000 season, they moved to their current home in downtown Los Angeles. The team’s original colors of purple (or "Forum Blue," as it was later officially called) and gold were chosen because they were colors traditionally associated with royalty.
