Kelly Hrudey will be honored during Saturday’s game against the Calgary Flames as part of the team’s Legends Night promotion this season. Hrudey told reporters Friday morning he was “honored” by the gesture of the reigning Stanley Cup champions. “But the other word that comes to mind is embarrassed,” he added. “I don’t know if anybody ever thinks that once your time is done with an organization that they’re going to honor you. You think you’re going to do your best and you move on and they move on. So, I’m eally excited about it. Beyond excited. And really nervous.”
The Kings will honor former goaltender Kelly Hrudey on Saturday night as part of their Legends Night series this season at Staples Center. Hrudey played with a distinctive bandanna beneath his goalie mask, and all fans attending Saturday’s game against the Calgary Flames will receive a Hrudey-style bandanna. Hrudey played for 15 seasons in the NHL, including eight with the Kings. “Hrudey on Duty,” was a common rallying cry as he helped to lead the Kings to the 1993 Stanley Cup Final. Hrudey is second on the Kings’ all-time list in victories with 145 and appearances with 360.
