As a major player in the worlds of sports, philanthropy and business, Hockey Legend Luc Robitaille knows what it takes to be a successful leader. The highest-scoring left winger in NHL history shows audiences how to use the qualities of a champion athlete to overcome challenges and reach their goals. In a 20-year NHL career from 1986 to 2006, he played for the Los Angeles Kings (three different times), New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins. Robitaille retired as the all time highest-scoring left winger in National Hockey League history and the holder of the Kings franchise record for goals.Luc Robitaille was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 1984. He wasn't drafted until the ninth round; however, Luc worked hard to improve, and ended up winning the Calder Trophy in 1986, as the league's best rookie.

In his initial campaign with the Kings, he picked up a reputation not only as a talented young player and a goal sniper but as a "lucky" one as well. For the next 7 seasons Luc became a fixture in Los Angeles helping to lead the team to their only appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals and being an annual league All Star.After the 2000-01 season, Luc left LA again as a free agent and went to the Detroit Red Wings with only one thing on his mind: to win a Stanley Cup. His time in the Motor City was fond, as in fact he was able to add the final trophy that needed to be displayed in his personal collection of accomplishments as winner of the 2002 Stanley Cup Championship.

Outside of Luc's NHL career he represented Canada at various international competitions including the Canada Cup and the IIHF World Championships. One of Luc's proudest moments was being the Team Captain of Canada at the 1994 World Championships in Milan, Italy. Through his leadership and play Luc was able to lead Canada to their first World Championship since 1961, as Luc scored the championship goal in the shootout.

Luc’s interests have also expanded to include a major philanthropic role. Shelter for Serenity, a nationwide disaster relief project, was founded in 2005 by Luc and Stacia Robitaille to provide housing support following the Gulf Coast disasters. The Robitailles, with the help of friends and supporters, are making it their personal mission to raise as many families as possible out of devastation by giving them an opportunity to start over. Shelter for Serenity's goal is to directly rebuild their lives - by helping get them on the road towards new homes, new jobs, and new futures.

Mr. Robitaille established Raystone Productions, Inc.,located in Los Angeles, California to build and acquire various properties for his personal portfolio. Mr. Robitaille co-founded and operated, with various partnerships, a number of Ice-o-plex super centers in the southwestern US.
