Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The Los Angeles Kings’ Legends Night Series will honor Luc Robitaille with a statue outside the Staples Center.

Famous artists Julie Rotblatt Amrany and Omri Amrany will be creating Robitaille’s monument.

Once finished, the statue will be joining sculptures of distinguished Los Angeles athletes Wayne Gretzky and Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

Robitaille is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, playing 14 of his 19 NHL seasons with the Kings.

He scored a total of 668 goals in his illustrious stint in the league.

In the 2014-2015 season, the Kings will also honor Tony Granato and Barry Melrose.

Granato played seven seasons for the Kings and scored a career-best 82 points in a 1992-93 team that made it to the Stanley Cup Final.

The same team was coached by Melrose who will be honored on February 12 before a game with the Calgary Flames.

Meanwhile, the Kings are set to give Granato a tribute before the team faces the Detroit Red Wings on February 24.

The Kings will be sporting vintage jerseys for three games as part of the Legends Night Series.
