Frozen Royalty Video: That 70′s Line Leads LA Kings To 4-1 Win Over Winnipeg

LOS ANGELES — Tanner Pearson, Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter, who make up “That 70’s Line” for the Los Angeles Kings, each scored a goal and added an assist to lead the Kings to a 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets in front of a sellout crowd of 18,230 fans at Staples Center in Los Angeles on October 12.

LA Kings 2012 First Round Pick Tanner Pearson Just Missed Being a 7th Round Pick In 2011

FROZEN ROYALTY EXCLUSIVE: Did you know that, if not for one, critical decision back in 2011, Los Angeles Kings rookie sensation Tanner Pearson could easily still be toiling away in the minor leagues, getting limited ice time (and limited development) on the third or fourth line with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, and that he, and the Kings, might not have won the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship because of that? Indeed, that was very nearly the case. Part 1 of a two-part series.


EL SEGUNDO, CA — During the Los Angeles Kings’ remarkable 26-game run through the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, culminating in their second Stanley Cup Championship in the last three seasons, rookie left wing Tanner Pearson seemed to come out of nowhere, scoring four goals and contributing eight assists for twelve points, while playing on a line with right wing Tyler Toffoli and center Jeff Carter to make up what became known as the “That 70’s Line.”

That line gave the Kings a whole new look up front, and, in particular, gave the Chicago Blackhawks fits during the 2014 Western Conference Final—they had no answer for them.

For his part, Pearson used speed that had not been seen from him prior to the post-season to get to loose pucks and set up his line mates time and time again. In the end, the result was becoming a Stanley Cup Champion at the age of 21, and in just his first season in the National Hockey League.

2014-15 Los Angeles Kings: “Make The Playoffs First”

EL SEGUNDO, CA — If you ask National Hockey League players, they will usually tell you that each season, their goal is to win the Stanley Cup.

But during the first day on the ice at the Los Angeles Kings 2014 training camp, that was not the case at all.

“Make the playoffs first,” said head coach Darryl Sutter. “That’s the first significant step.”

To be sure, that formula has worked for the Kings in two out of the last three seasons.

In 2011-12, the Kings qualified for the playoffs by the skins of their teeth as the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference.
