As it stands, none are on the active roster. Many players on the Los Angeles Kings were developed through their farm system, including Anze Kopitar, Alex Turcotte, and Adrian Kempe. As a result, the Kings have younger talent with more upside.

However, there have been plenty of former Kings that are currently playing or have played on the Vegas Golden Knights. That includes Alec Martinez (who's won two additional Stanley Cups with the Kings) and Michael Amadio. In fact, the Golden Knights acquired former Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick from the Columbus Blue Jackets in last season's Stanley Cup run.
