The 1969–70 Los Angeles Kings season was the third ever for the Los Angeles Kings in the National Hockey League. After qualifying for the playoffs in each of their first two seasons, under the direction of coach Red Kelly (who left to take the Pittsburgh job), the Kings fell into the basement of the Western Division. The team also fired coach Hal Laycoe after just 24 games. His replacement, Johnny Wilson, did not fare much better, winning just nine of the remaining 52 games on the schedule.

OffseasonEdit

In the Entry Draft, the Kings chose goaltender Dale Hoganson with their first pick, 16th overall in the second round.

Regular seasonEdit

The Kings endured some long stretches of futility during the 1969-70 season:

  • From January 29 through March 5, they went 17 straight games without a victory (0-13-4)
  • From November 8 through November 29, they went 10 straight games without a victory (0-9-1)
  • From January 11 through January 25, and again from January 29 through February 15, they lost 8 straight games
  • From January 11 through February 15, they suffered 11 consecutive road losses.
  • Their only two victories away from home all season were: December 2 (4-3 at Oakland) and January 10 (6-4 at Minnesota)
