The cornerstone blueliner spent 14 seasons with the Kings after they chose him with the 70th overall pick in the 1988 NHL Draft. During his time with the team, he was a four-time All-Star and the winner of the 1997-98 Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman. He was traded to Colorado in February 2001, but returned as a free agent in July 2006, spending two more seasons in LA. He ranks fourth all-time in games played and penalty minutes for the Kings.
