Fewer banners and a vintage color scheme
There was a slight shock to the senses at the Toyota Sports Center this morning as the 1990-91 Smythe Division banner and the 1992-93 Campbell Conference banner had been removed, changing a familiar line of sight from the press area. Of course, the most recent banner remains.
As they often do at practices in advance of retro jersey nights, the team was also breaking in the forum blue and gold pants, helmets and gloves at practice this morning. The vintage color scheme will be used when the Kings host the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, February 23. Here, Jonathan Bernier mans the crease at practice this morning with vintage brown equipment.
