Ten days ago, Michael Latta officially left the Washington Capitals, signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings. Not only is Latta getting a full-time roster spot, he’s also getting a brand new number and it’s one that his long-time fans will be familiar with.
Latta will wear number 17 next season – the same number he wore in junior hockey with the Guelph Storm. It’s also the same number Milan Lucic wore for the Kings last season.
