Kings unveil new uniform and colors

August 30, 2011 | 12:03 pm


The Kings announced Tuesday that they will make the following changes to their team colors and uniforms:

--The Kings’ official team colors change to black, silver and white.

--The Kings’ primary home uniform switches to the black-silver-and-white uniform the club has worn as an alternate jersey the last two seasons.

-- The Kings will wear a newly created white version of this jersey for all road games this season. 

"There was an overwhelming sentiment from our fans and from our players that has led us to this change," said Luc Robitaille, Kings president of business operations.  "Our fans really like the late '80s and early '90s-era Kings uniforms which are very similar to this uniform. As a player, the colors give you an attitude and an edge."

The Kings’ primary home jersey -- which prominently features “LA” on the jersey crest, has not been altered and will now be worn for most Kings home games –- also reflects the club’s primary logo going forward. The black-silver-and-white uniform is also the sweater that Kings players wore during home games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs the last two seasons, and a silver stripe has been added to the player’s pants.

As part of the switch, the Kings’ former primary mark, a crown featuring the color purple, now becomes the club’s alternate logo with one change –- the crown is now black and silver and features no purple.  The Kings will wear these jerseys (unaltered from a year ago) for select home games.
