Los Angeles Kings players Matt Greene and Jarret Stoll made a public appearance at the City Council meeting last Tuesday to accept a commendation as “Champions." The two ice hockey stars live in Hermosa Beach.
“We are proud that Matt and Jarret chose Hermosa Beach as their home and thank them for being positive role models for our City both on and off the ice," said Mayor Patrick "Kit" Bobko. City Council has been recognizing residents and organizations at the the beginning of council meetings in recognition of "innovators, champions, and iconoclasts."
The Kings, who won their first Stanley Cup in 2012, celebrated that victory on Pier Plaza that summer, bringing thousands of fans and well wishers out to see players.
