After a bit of a slow start to the 2013-14 season, the Los Angeles Kings have been nearly unstoppable throughout November and December.
With 54 points (25-11-4) the Kings sit third in the Pacific Division and fifth in the tough Western Conference.
While the Kings have thrived because of strong team defense, there are a few individuals who deserve to be recognized for their efforts. These are the Kings' award winners for the first half of the season.
Some awards will go to players you would have expected heading into the season. Others may go to players who weren't even on the roster in October.
