Get to know your NHL Mascots! Meet Bailey @BaileyLAKings …the friendly fiesty Lion from the Los Angeles Kings. ROCKET SPORT keeps Bailey dry with his ROCKET DRYER on the road and his ROCKET Locker at Staples Center.The mascot of the Kings since 2007 is Bailey, a 6-foot lion (6 foot 4 inches with mane included) who wears No. 72 because it is the average temperature in Los Angeles. He was named in honor of Garnet “Ace” Bailey, who served Director of Pro Scouting for seven years before dying in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Bailey is the second mascot, after Kingston the snow leopard in the early 1990s.
