Whether it’s been for 40 years or 40 days, fans of the LA Kings know and love Jim Fox.

While he has been known as the club’s TV color analyst for many years, it’s easy to forget that the native of Colliston, Ont. was quite the player, as well. In fact, Fox’s career with the Kings had a promising start.

In his rookie season of 1981-82, Fox scored three goals and three assists in his first four games. But, unlike No. 5 in our list, Fox would be a consistent contributor for his new team.

In 77 games in 1981-82, Fox would score 30 goals and add 38 assists for 68 points. He would even help the underdog Kings to arguably the biggest playoff upset in NHL history that spring.
