Going into the 2019-20 season the Los Angeles Kings will look to bounce back from their worst season in 13 years as they usher in a new era under coach Todd McLellan who will be replacing interim head coach Willie Desjardins who took over back in November.
Outside of the coaching change, they Kings did not do much in regards to the lineup. The biggest moves were the buyout of defenseman Dion Phaneuf, and the signing of defenseman Joakim Ryan.
The Kings need scoring and speed, and without both of those, it could be a difficult 2019-20 season. Only time will tell to see how the Kings turn things around under McLellan.
