Kings to retire Blake's No. 4

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Kings announced Monday that the team will retire the No. 4 jersey of former defenseman Rob Blake this coming season.

The ceremony will take place prior to the Kings' January 17 game against Anaheim.

Blake, a member of the 2014 class bound for the Hockey Hall of Fame, played parts of 14 seasons during two stints with the Kings and is the franchise's all-time leader in games played (805), goals (161), assists (333) and points (494) by a defenseman.

"It is an honor to be included with the former great LA King players who have their jersey's retired," Blake said. "I have always felt LA was a special place to play and it was and is a tremendous privilege to put on an LA Kings jersey."

Blake will become the sixth Kings player to have his jersey hang from the rafters of the Staples Center, joining Rogie Vachon, Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor, Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille.

A former Norris Trophy winner, Blake currently serves the Kings' assistant general manager.
