L.A. Kings clear up logo confusion

One television network flashed a logo of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings when referencing the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. Another absolutely butchered a highlight pack from the hockey-playing Kings’ Western Conference final — the puck was referred to as a ball, and that might not have been the worst mistake as Drew Doughty somehow transformed into the lesser-known Brad Doty. (Remember: This is a 45-year-old club that is one victory away from the Stanley Cup final.)

So in response to this pair of atrocious television cough-ups, the Los Angeles Kings — the reigning monarch when it comes to the social media exploits of NHL franchises — tweeted out a wonderful smart-alecky message to clear up their history: “With all the confusion lately, we’ve built this handy-dandy #LAKings infographic to assist and inform.”

The infographic (below) includes such well-researched tidbits as “What LA Kings use to play hockey against their opponents: PUCK” and “Years Kings have either played in Sacramento, thought about playing in Sacramento, or invested in a feasibility report on a potential move to Sacramento: 0.”
