In Bob Miller’s Tales from the Los Angeles Kings, Bob Miller shares over 30 years of Hollywood hockey with fans, reminding them of the highs and lows of L.A. hockey, while entertaining them with behind-the-scenes looks into the Kings organization. The Kings presented Miller with a "lifetime contract" in 1998 to make him a part of Los Angeles sports history along with the likes of Vin Scully and Chick Hearn.
As the "Voice of the Kings," Miller has been part of the Kings experience from original owner Jack Kent Cooke to the flamboyant Jerry Buss; from the team’s first true superstar, Rogie Vachon, to then-owner Bruce McNall’s trade that put Southern California on the hockey map.
That trade, of course, was made August 8, 1988, and it brought The Great One to Los Angeles from Edmonton. Wayne Gretzky, the greatest hockey player of all time, established L.A. as the center of the hockey universe during his legendary career with the organization, and Bob Miller recounts his favorite memories of No. 99 in this collection.
Join Miller as he skates through Kings history, examining off-the-wall personalities and the team’s greatest moments—from thrilling playoff victories to the Kings’ involvement in the Lakers acquisition of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
From the "Triple Crown Line" to Ziggy Palffy and today’s Kings, you will read about the greatest personalities ever to don the royal black and silver and relish the stories that make Bob Miller’s Tales from the Los Angeles Kings the ultimate addition to any Kings fan’s library.
