Add Andrei Loktionov's Name to the Stanley Cup

12 Signatures Goal: 10,000

When a team wins the Stanley Cup, the names of the players who were on that team are engraved on the Cup itself, a lasting reminder of their efforts. In deciding which players get their names engraved, the NHL has set up rules; a player must play in 41 regular season games or 1 Finals game. But the winning team may also petition the league to include other players who don't meet those criteria if it wishes to. In 2012 the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in their history. They put 52 names on the Cup. Among those were David Drewiske and Kevin Westgarth, though Drewiske played only 9 regular season games and Westgarth 25; neither made it into a game in the Finals. Andrei Loktionov, on the other hand, played 39 regular season games and two more in the first round of the playoffs. He spent the majority of the season with the Kings' farm team in the AHL, but was a healthy scratch for the Kings throughout most of the playoffs. His name was left off the Cup and the Kings didn't even petition to get him on there as they did with Drewiske and Westgarth. There is plenty of room for Loktionov's name to be added to the Kings' patch of the Cup. If we can garner enough signatures to show the Kings fan community's desire to see Lokti on the Cup, maybe we can convince the Kings to ask the NHL to go back and fix this grievous slight against a fine young man who should have been honored if those who contributed less to the cause than him were. Please sign.
