LOS ANGELES — As they did in March 2013, after they won the 2012 Stanley Cup Championship, the Los Angeles Kings visited the White House in Washington, D.C., as honored guests of the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, on February 2, to be honored as the 2014 Stanley Cup Champions.

Just like in 2012, the Kings shared the honor with Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy (they won the 2012 MLS Cup), who won the 2014 MLS Cup Championship.

Both the Kings and the Galaxy are owned by the Anschutz Entertainment Group.
