When the infamous 2004-05 lockout ended, there was a palpable sense of excitement for fans all around the NHL. Those of the LA Kings were no exception as their team would start the 2005-06 season with newly-acquired all-star Jeremy Roenick.

In his first game with the Kings, Roenick did not disappoint, scoring two goals in the first 4:18 of the game.

If Kings fans thought this was a sign of things to come, however, they would soon be disappointed. In 58 games for the Kings that season, Roenick would only score nine goals and 13 assists — his lowest career totals since his rookie season of 1988-89. He only played 20 games that season, by the way.

2005-06 was Roenick’s only season with the Kings as he would sign with the Phoenix Coyotes in the summer of 2006.
