The Los Angeles Kings have named Bob Miller an ambassador for the 2017-18 season. Miller was the Kings play-by-play broadcaster for 44 years before retiring at the end of last season because of health concerns.

Miller is currently 78 years of age. He was the third Kings play-by-play broadcaster in franchise history following Jiggs McDonald and Roy Storey.  

Miller will be a part time contributor for the Kings this season. Among the special projects he will work on with the Kings include being the masters of ceremonies during the Legends Night Series. 

In other Kings news, the team has signed former Kings center Jarret Stoll to a consultant in their development staff. Stoll played seven seasons for the Kings from 2008 to 2015. He was part of the two Kings teams that won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. Stoll is currently with the Kings rookies as they are playing the Vegas Golden Knights rookies during two rookie games at the Toyota Sports Center (the Kings practice facility in El Segundo, Calif.). 

The Kings begin their 2017-18 National Hockey League regular season against the Philadelphia Flyers on Oct. 5. For tickets please click here.
