The Manchester Monarchs are an ice hockey team in the American Hockey League. They play in Manchestermarker, New Hampshiremarker at the Verizon Wireless Arenamarker. They have been the AHL affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings since 2001.


The Monarchs played their first game on October 6, 2001 against the Lowell Lock Monsters, losing 6–3. Their first win was a week later, on October 13, 2001, against the Norfolk Admirals

The team has been competitive within the division every year of its existence. They won their first Atlantic Division title in 2004–05, but lost in the first round to Providence. This continued the streak of first round playoff exits, which the team had experienced in every year of existence, and would come to include the 2005–06 season.

2006–07 was the team's best season to date. With rookie head coach Mark Morris, leading scorers Matt Moulson and Noah Clarke, and former league MVP Jason LaBarbera in goal, the team had their best finish ever, winning the Atlantic Division title with the second-best points total in the league.

Heading into the playoffs, there was doubts within the team, as star goaltender LaBarbera had ended the season injured. The team faced the Worcester Sharks in the first round. With LaBarbera coming back by game 2, the Monarchs defeated the Sharks in six games, including double-overtime thrillers in games 2 and 6. The second round brought the Providence Bruins, who put up as much - if not more - of a fight. The Monarchs found a way, however, and defeated the Bruins in six games. This brought the Monarchs to their first ever Eastern Conference finals, but they were swept by the defending champion Hershey Bears in four games.

Following their run in 2007, the Monarchs looked to have holes to fill, as LaBarbera was brought up to the Kings, along with several other players. The 2007–08 season was an up and down one, which ended following a sweep by the Providence Bruins in the first round of the playoffs. 2008–09 was a landmark year for the franchise, but not in the way they would hope. Despite a late surge, the team finished fifth, five points out of the playoffs, for the first time in franchise history.
