Marcel Dionne


Marcel Dionne may be the best NHL player who never won Lord Stanley's Cup. After arriving from Detroit in a 1971 trade, he spent 12 seasons with the Kings, compiling 550 goals and 757 assists for 1,307 points, good for the top spot on the franchise's all-time scoring list. With wingers Charlie Simmer and Dave Taylor, the eight-time All-Star was the backbone of the famed "Triple Crown Line", one of the most dangerous scoring units in the history of the game. Dionne won the NHL scoring title for 1979-80 and was a two-time recipient of the Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play. The Kings retired his number 16 on November 8, 1990, two years before his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
