Back in the mid-1960s, in an attempt to gain even more fans of professional hockey, the National Hockey League decided to double the number of teams it organized nationwide. As part of that effort, Los Angeles was awarded a franchise that would come to be known as the Los Angeles Kings. It was a choice that boggled many minds at the time: Los Angeles has never been known as an ice-cold town, and it certainly wasn't a hotbed of hockey activity prior to winning the franchise. Even so, the team began playing during the 1967 season and has entertained Los Angeles residents ever since.
Unfortunately, the Kings have not been met with the same success as many other Los Angeles expansion teams or transplants. During the past half-century, they've managed only to win a single division championship and just one Stanley Cup. Both achievements took several decades to take place, having occurred only in the 2011-2012 season. Even so, the recent nature of those victories has boosted the team's morale and its ticket sales figures, and that means many new fans are looking for the right clothing and accessory choices for their needs.
