NHL: LA Kings Will Reportedly Name Rob Blake as Assistant GM

Jul 17 2013, 8:49pm CDT | by

The Los Angeles Kings will reportedly name one of its former players, Rob Blake, as their assistant general manager who will replace Ron Hextall.

The Los Angeles Kings will reportedly name one of their former players, Rob Blake, as assistant general manager.

This is the latest development from the Kings' front office as reported by Mayor's Manor's John Hoven, citing a source with knowledge of the situation. Hoven reports the source informed Mayor's Manor on Monday. 

Hoven reiterates Blake will officially be taking over the role left by Ron Hextall, who accepted a position with his former team, the Philadelphia Flyers, to be their assistant general manager and director of hockey operations on Monday. 

NBC Sports' Jason Brough says once Blake's appointment has been made official, he will be leaving his post with the NHL's Department of Player Safety, a job he's had since January 2011. He has been working with NHL chief player disciplinarian and soon-to-be Hall of Famer Brendan Shanahan. 

Ironcially, Shanahan was reported to be joining the Calgary Flames as their director of hockey operations last month. The speculation was Blake would be taking over as the league's chief disciplinarian should Shanahan grab the opportunity with Calgary. With his impending departure to the Kings, Blake will now leave Shanahan and his staff searching for an able replacement. 

The 44-year-old Blake was a defenseman who broke into the NHL ranks in 1989 with the Kings. He's also played for the Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks in a career that lasted until 2010. In 1,270 games played, he scored 240 goals and dished out 537 assists for 777 career points. 

His 14-year stint with the Kings culminated in him winning the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman in 1997-98.
