TORONTO — During Monday’s red carpet phase preceding the induction ceremony, I had a chance to speak with Kings’ legend Luc Robitaille. There, Robitaille gave us his thoughts on Nick Nickson‘s induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame and even what it means for the growth of hockey in California.

“For us, it’s very special because we’re in California and we’re always trying to sell the game,” Robitaille said. “We love what we do there and to see how it’s growing, so to have a gentleman like Nick Nickson to get acknowledged, to get in the Hall of Fame, in Toronto, it’s very special and it’s something our fans are very happy about and we’re going to celebrate with him tomorrow night at our game, so it’s pretty neat.”

The Kings’ President of Business Operations was referring to Tueday night where the Kings will honour Nickson as part of their Legends Night series. There, the sold-out crowd — prior to watching the game — at STAPLES Center will be able to give Nickson the ovation he deserves, to say thank you for not only for all his years of service but for being such a great ambassador to the Los Angeles Kings and to the game of hockey overall.
