Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille will have a statue created in his honor and unveiled by the Los Angeles Kings during the 2014-15 campaign. That’s part of the larger Legends Night Series that the team has announced for the upcoming season.

Robitaille, whose statue will be made by Julie Rotblatt Amrany and Omri Amrany, is set to be honored on March 7 before the start of the Kings’ contest against the Pittsburgh Penguins. His statue will be in Star Plaza at Staples Center.

The retired forward scored 668 goals and 1,394 points in 1,431 games. He spent the bulk of his career with Los Angeles, but he also played for Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers, and Detroit. He currently serves as the Kings’ president of business operations.

Los Angeles will also honor Barry Melrose on Feb. 12 and Tony Granato on Feb. 24.

    why honor Barry Melrose. He is a Jack A** who doesnt know what he is talking about half the time. He picks a team like Boston or Pitt to win the cup in the start of the year then when LA wins he goes ” I knew all along that LA would win this year” lol guys a joke

    C’mon, the mullet energized the team and got them on an amazing hot streak while Gretzky had that piano on his back while he skated for half the season. They’re having a night for Granato as well. The honor paid by the organization and fans to former players is part of what has turned this team into a family that players league wide want to be a part of. Can’t hate on Barry…we would have had a Cup with him if it weren’t for that damned curved stick!
