The 1987–88 Los Angeles Kings season saw the Kings finish in fourth place in the Smythe Division with a record of 30 wins, 42 losses, and 8 ties for 68 points. They lost the Division Semi-finals in five games to the Calgary Flames.

This was the last season that the Kings wore purple and gold uniforms with a crown logo adorning the front. After this season, they would introduce a new logo with a silver and black uniform, coinciding with the acquisition of Wayne Gretzky from the Edmonton Oilers.
