JIM FOX - FORMER NHL PLAYER AND TV ANALYST FOR THE LA KINGS – PLAYOFFS AND THE LOS ANGELES KINGS “BEARDATHON”
LOS ANGELES KINGS “BEARDATHON”
Los Angeles Kings “Beardathon” raiseS money for the March of Dimes who’s mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. If you are able to pledge for Jim's beard, every little bit helps…
Jim Fox is in his 26th season as the Kings Television Analyst, joining Bob Miller in the booth for club broadcasts on FOX Sports West.
Ninth on the Kings all-time scoring list, ninth in assists and 11th in goals with 479 points (186-293=479) in 578 games, Fox spent his entire 10-year career as a member of the Kings after being selected in the first round (10th overall) of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. A three time 30-goal scorer, Fox enjoyed his most productive season in 1984-85 when he recorded 83 points (30-53=83), and in 22 career playoff games with the Kings, Fox had 12 points (4-8=12). Over his playing career with the Kings, Fox also holds the distinction of playing the fourth most games -- starting, ending and only with the Kings (Dave Taylor holds the mark followed by Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar).
Prior to becoming a King, Fox enjoyed a standout junior career with the Ottawa 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). As the club’s captain during the 1979-80 campaign, Fox recorded at least one point in every game, including preseason, regular season and the playoffs, and he was a finalist for the Canadian Jr. Player of the Year after earning OHL Most Valuable Player and Leading Scorer awards.
Internationally, Fox represented Canada at the World Junior Championship in Helsinki (1979-80) and he also earned a bronze medal at the World Championship in Moscow in 1986.
Upon retirement as a player in 1990, Fox became Director of Community Relations for the Kings, a position he held until 1994. During that time, he was responsible for creating the Kings Care Foundation and annual Foundation events such as Tip-A-King, the team’s charity golf tournament and the Kings Youth Hockey Camp.
He remains one of the strongest forces in the Kings community development and charitable efforts, as a Special Ambassador, and he spends an enormous amount of time supporting and developing programs that benefit the children of our community, while also sitting on the board. For 25 years, Fox also co-hosted the Cystic Fibrosis Golf Classic with Dave Taylor, and now he actively serves as Commissioner for the new Los Angeles Kings High School Hockey League. In 2015 the Kings named their Community Service Award, which is given annually to an active Kings player, after Fox.
Fox, 55 (5/18/60), a wine lover, has participated as a judge in the Long Beach Grand Cru and the Los Angeles County Fair “Wines of the World,” both international wine-tasting competitions. Fox, along with winemaker Mike Smith, produces single vineyard designate Pinot Noir from California under the brand name “Patiné Cellars.” Patiné is French for “to have skated!” This past September he hosted the fifth annual “Sunset Sip” wine tasting fundraiser to benefit The Guidance Center.
Fox played himself in the popular 1999 movie “Mystery, Alaska,” and he was the first Kings recipient of the club’s Community Service Award (1988-89). In addition to his duties in the broadcasting booth, Fox has also served as the co-host of the Los Angeles-area Emmy Award-winning “Kings Live” pre-game show on FOX Sports West for several seasons.
In the October 2, 2006, issue of Sports Illustrated, Fox was named the Best Analyst in hockey. From 1998-2012 Fox was named the Best TV Color Commentator in Southern California by Los Angeles Daily News Columnist Tom Hoffarth (the one year he did not win the award was when there was no NHL season), and Hoffarth has also named Fox and Miller the “Best Broadcasting Team” in a different award. In 2008, the Southern California Sports Broadcasters honored him with the top pre and post-game shows commentator award and in 2009, 2011 and 2012, and in 2015 he won for the best TV Analyst for the second consecutive time (and fifth time in the last six years).
Also, on February 11, 2006, the Kings held “Jim Fox Day” at STAPLES Center, and Fox was honored on the ice before a game for his 25 years of service to the organization as a player and broadcaster. During the 2013-14 season, Fox was a Legends Night Series honoree by the Kings at STAPLES Center.
From 2005-08, Fox also worked for NHL Radio through the Stanley Cup Final, as well as working as a studio playoff analyst for Yahoo! Sports from 2006-09.
A native of Coniston, Ontario, Jim is a resident of Redondo Beach with his wife Susie.
