The best NHL player to ever wear number 20, is a player I remember fondly as one of the best goal scorers of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Luc Robitaille was taken in the 9th round of the 1984 NHL draft, but proved himself worthy of a mucher higher pick during his rookie NHL season in 1986-87 when he scored 84 points in 79 games played (45 goals and 39 assists).
Robitaille would go on to have stints with the Rangers, Penguins and Red Wings, but he's identified with the Kings. The Kings, in fact, retired his jersey number 20. For his NHL career, here is just a bit of what Luc Robitaille accomplished.
- 1,394 career points
- 668 career goals (NHL record for a left wing)
- 1987 Calder Memorial Trophy winner
- 2009 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee
- Los Angeles Kings leader in goals scored (577)
