LOS ANGELES — On October 14, when the Los Angeles Kings honored their 1967-68 team as part of the franchise’s 50th Anniversary commemoration, the 13 players from that first Kings team who were able to attend, along with the team’s first play-by-play announcer, Jiggs McDonald, had the time of their lives, by all accounts.

Not only did they enjoy all the festivities and the first class treatment they got, but they also enjoyed reuniting with each other out of the spotlight, sharing stories, reminiscing, and enjoying the camaraderie they had as teammates so many years ago.

LOS ANGELES — On January 27, 2016, Los Angeles Kings faithful held their collective breath when the news broke that beloved, long-time television play-by-play announcer Bob Miller would be taking an immediate medical leave of absence so that he could undergo cardiac bypass surgery.

“I did have some chest pain [years ago], but when I had a physical, they’d say that the numbers on the blood test for your heart are right where they should be,” the 78-year-old native of Chicago, Illinois explained. “But our doctor said, ‘let’s do another test.’ There’s a test for calcium build-up around the heart and the arteries. The normal numbers, as I understand it, are in the 400’s. Mine came back at 3,300.”

“So they did an angiogram and that’s when the doctor—I was still in the room, on the table—he called [his wife], Judy over,” Miller elaborated. “He had it on the TV screen and said that there were four arteries that were 90 percent blocked.”
