Kings to unveil retro throwback jersey


The Los Angeles Kings will pay homage to their heritage when they don their 1995 throwbacks during the pregame warmup Saturday prior to facing off against the Winnipeg Jets.

Colloquially known as the "Burger King jersey", the Kings donned these threads - complete with a purple-bearded king wearing a golden crown - during the 1995-96 season, when the team boasted the likes of Wayne Gretzky and Kelly Hrudey, among other Los Angeles greats.

Following that season, the alternate jersey was quickly stuffed to the back of the closet as the Kings returned to their traditional black and white scheme for the next two seasons. A purple, black, and silver look was introduced in 1998-99.
