LAST SEASON: 46-28-8, 100 points. Finished third in Pacific Division. Won the Stanley Cup.

COACH: Darryl Sutter, 4th season with Kings, 98-57-24; 15th overall in NHL.

ADDED: RW Adam Cracknell.

LOST: D Willie Mitchell, C Colin Fraser.

PLAYER TO WATCH: D Brayden McNabb. Mitchell’s departure was the only significant change to the Kings’ championship roster, and they hope the bruising McNabb can make the full-time NHL leap into his spot.

OUTLOOK: This tenacious, balanced team has won two of the last three Stanley Cup titles, playing a record 64 postseason games in that stretch. There’s no reason to think the Kings can’t contend for three crowns in four years, an NHL feat that hasn’t been accomplished since Edmonton did it in 1990.
