The longtime radio broadcaster of the Kings, Nick Nickson, and former players Jimmy Carson and Mike Donnelly will be honored by the organization this upcoming season in its continuing Legends Night Series.

For Nickson, it will be a season of well-deserved recognition, highlighted by his acceptance of the Foster Hewitt Award at a luncheon on Nov. 9 in Toronto at the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Kings will honor Nickson the next night before their game against Arizona at Staples Center.

Donnelly, who was with the Kings during their run to the Stanley Cup Final in 1993 and now works for the franchise in scouting and development, will be honored Feb. 23 before a game against Calgary. The Legends Night for Carson will be held before a March 7 contest against Vancouver.

Carson was also part of the run to the Cup final in 1993, during his second go-round with the Kings. He was drafted second overall by the Kings in 1986 and became the second player to record 50 goals in a season before his 20th birthday. Wayne Gretzky was the first.

In 1988, Carson became part of history when he was included in the  blockbuster multiplayer trade that brought Gretzky to Los Angeles from Edmonton.

Additionally, the Kings announced that single-game tickets for regular-season home games would go on sale Sept. 14 at 10 a.m.

Tickets for the Kings' two preseason games at Staples Center are set to go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. Those games are against Arizona on Sept. 22 and the Ducks on Sept. 29.
