The Los Angeles Kings will be honoring veteran play-by-play broadcaster Bob Miller with a statue on Sat., Jan. 13 when they host the Anaheim Ducks at the Staples Center. Miller will be the third member of the Kings to have a statue outside the Staples Center, as he will be joined by legendary Kings players Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille. 

The unveiling of the statue is only part of the festivities, which is being labeled as "Bob Miller Celebration Day." Fans will also receive a special Bob Miller Bobblehead Doll with Miller holding his microphone. 

Miller is being honored because he was the Kings play-by-play broadcaster from 1973 to 2017. His longevity was remarkable and remains in the Kings organization as their team ambassador. Part of Miller's duties includes being the master of ceremonies during the special Kings Legends Night Series where they are honoring former Kings---Tiger Williams, Felix Potvin and Mark Hardy. 

Miller becomes the second broadcaster to have a statue outside the Staples Center. The other is Chick Hearn, who was the Los Angeles Lakers broadcaster from 1965 to 2002. 

The Kings are currently in second place in the Pacific Division with 53 points. They are five points back of the surprising Vegas Golden Knights.
