Kings To Host 2017 All-Star Game?

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

John Hoven of Mayor's Manor reports that the NHL will award the Kings the 2017 All-Star game. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Kings franchise and (less important) the 100th anniversary of the NHL. I'm sure a lot of teams would have loved to host the All-Star game in such a notable year, so it's a big honor for the Kings to get this.

One imagines the NHL will tweak the rules so that the Pacific Division captain won't be John Scott next year. Maybe this guy instead.
