It’s Reverse Retro night, as the Los Angeles Kings make a return to Forum Blue and Gold. It marks the first time the season the Kings will wear the retro-inspired sweaters, but that’s not the only debut tonight. Forward Arthur Kaliyev, a 19-year-old who was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft, will make his debut tonight against the Anaheim Ducks, playing on the fourth line with Lias Andersson and Trevor Moore. With Andreas Athanasiou and Blake Lizotte on the COVID-19 protocol list, they’ll need all the help they can get up front.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in tonight:
