The Los Angeles Kings will honor longtime announcer Nick Nickson Nov. 10 in the first of their three-game Legends Night Series at Staples Center for the 2015-16 season.
Nickson will be honored before the game against the Arizona Coyotes, one day after receiving the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award in Toronto for outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster.
Nickson joined the Kings in 1981 as the analyst for their radio and television broadcasts. He became the radio play-by-play announcer in 1990 when the team dropped simulcasts in favor of separate radio and television broadcasts.
Mike Donnelly and Jimmy Carson will be the other Legends Night Series honorees, the team announced this week.
Donnelly, a Kings left wing from 1990-95, will be honored before the Feb. 23 game against the Calgary Flames. Carson, a Kings center from 1986-88 and 1992-94, will be honored before the March 7 game against the Vancouver Canucks.
The Kings will wear their vintage gold jerseys with the crown emblem for all three games, the only times they will wear those jerseys during the 2015- 16 season.
