LOS ANGELES (CP) - Former star left-wing Luc Robitaille has been given a job in the Los Angeles Kings' front office, the club announced Wednesday.

Robitaille, hired as the Kings' alternate governor, will focus primarily on the Kings business operations and community relations.

"The game of hockey has been extremely good to me and my family, and I have always considered the Kings to be my second family," Robitaille said in a statement. "Even though I'm not on the ice anymore, my goal remains the same - to bring the cup to Los Angeles."

Robitaille is the highest scoring left-wing in NHL history with 668 career goals and 1,394 points. He played 14 of his 19 seasons with the Kings (1986-87 to 1993-94, 1997-98 to 2000-01 and 2003-04 to 2005-06). He also played for Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers and Detroit.

The Kings will retire Robitaille's No. 20 jersey in January 20.
