The Los Angeles Kings set the record straight about their logo, what sport they play


The Los Angeles Kings are one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Final.

They are the hottest team in hockey right now, arguably the best team in hockey, and perhaps the odds-on favorite to finish the postseason as champions. Even with all of that, they still have a bit of an indentity problem in their own city. Specifically, none of the local news stations seem to have any idea who they are, what sport they play, and how they go about playing it.

Whether it be stations using the wrong logo, identifying the wrong mascot, or talking about defenseman "Brad Doty" and their ability to possess "the ball," it's been a never-ending cycle of mistaken identity for the Kings over the past couple of weeks.

They've now decided to do something about it.

The Kings put together a handy infographic that goes through the trouble of pointing out who they are (the NHL's Los Angeles Kings) and who they are not (the NBA's Sacramento Kings).

The above image is how it opens up, and you can check it out in its entirety by clicking here. It's pretty worth it.

And this is one of the reasons the Kings are all the rage right now in the NHL. Not only for their play on the ice and the manner in which they've put together an 11-2 record this postseason, but also because everything about them is entertaining.
