Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup Betting

The Los Angeles Kings are in the postseason for the second consecutive season. That is the good news. The bad news is that the Kings are matched against the Edmonton Oilers in the 2023 Stanley Cup playoffs' first round. While the Kings struggled down the regular season stretch, the Oilers caught fire. Edmonton will have the best player on the ice in Connor McDavid. Last year the Oilers made the Western Conference Final. This year gamblers believe the Stanley Cup is possible. Edmonton has become a powerful brand in the NHL Betting community. All of that makes them a strong favorite against the Kings.

Los Angeles Kings History

Founded in the NHL “Great Expansion” of 1967 that doubled the league’s size from 6 to 12 teams, the Los Angeles Kings have had a rich history in both good times and bad. The early years were headlined by Real “Frenchy” Lemieux and Eddie “The Jet” Joyal. Original owner Jack Kent Cooke built the “Fabulous Forum” for his Kings. But mediocre hockey was the rule rather than the exception for most of the Kings' first 20 years of existence. Thus, the team was largely ignored. But everything changed with Wayne Gretzky’s arrival in 1988. The Great One made both the Kings and NHL mainstream. The Kings went from being ignored to the most popular team in LA. A new generation of Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014.

Gretzky is the biggest name to ever play the sport, let alone for the Kings. But others such as Luc Robitaille, Marcel Dionne, and Rogie Vachon are revered hockey names in Southern California and Kings lore.

The dream of a Stanley Cup seemed impossible for many longtime Kings fans. But Los Angeles built up its roster with several good drafts. By the time the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs began, the Kings were perhaps the best 8-seed team in history. And that was proven by how Los Angeles steamrolled through the postseason to win their first Stanley Cup.

LA overcame an 0-3 deficit against the San Jose Sharks two years later to win the series 4-3. That was the springboard to a second Stanley Cup title run.

The Kings have always played second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles. But the hockey club has always had die-hard passionate loyalists the pack the arena for every game.

The end of the 2021-22 season marked the retirement of longtime King stalwart and former captain Dustin Brown. Brown was the captain of both of LA’s Stanley Cup championship teams. He goes down as one of the greatest Kings of all time.
