"Dave has a wealth of experience as both a player and a coach and we're excited to have him join our team," Stevens said. "He played over 1,000 games in the NHL and was a great teammate as a player.

"As a coach, he's really detailed, he relates well with players and he is driven to win."

Lowry's coaching resume includes experience at the NHL and Western Hockey League (WHL) levels.

Most recently, Lowry served as the head coach for the Victoria Royals (WHL) for the last five seasons. His club posted a winning record each season and the club made the playoffs all five years. Overall, the team posted a 209-124-27 record under Lowry.

"I am very excited to join the Kings and John Stevens' coaching staff," Lowry said. "I have a great deal of familiarity with the Kings and the way they help prepare and develop players in particular and I believe I have a good understanding and appreciation of the professionalism of the L.A. Kings on the whole.

"I am also appreciative of the time I have spent with the Victoria Royals, including Graham Lee as the owner, Cameron Hope as the general manager, and my entire staff in Victoria."

In 2003-04, Lowry concluded his NHL playing career. He broke in with the Vancouver Canucks in 1985 and went on to play for the St. Louis Blues, Florida Panthers, San Jose Sharks and Calgary Flames, where he served as team captain.

In his 1,084 career NHL regular season games, Lowry totaled 351 points and 1,191 penalty minutes.
