Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Phil Hoene
Left-winger Phil Hoene spent parts of three seasons with the LA Kings in the mid-70s. He was a decent goal scorer and checker who also did well in the NCAA and minor leagues.

Born in Duluth, Minnesota, Hoene was a fine high school player in the state that had the most passionate supporters for this level of hockey. He spent two years at the University of Minnesota-Duluth then signed as a free agent with the Kings in June, 1971. The young forward received a full year of seasoning with the AHL's Springfield Kings in 1971-72 then dressed for four NHL games the next year.

After scoring 36 goals for Springfield in 1972-73, Hoene played 31 games for LA the following season. He was used as a utility fill-in and often played on the fourth line with Gene Carr, Tommy Williams or Randy Rota. When the Kings steamrolled to 105 points in 1974-75, Hoene had difficulty getting sufficient playing time. He ended up back in Springfield and notched 25 goals in 70 games. During the playoffs he led all scorers with 12 goals and 22 points while helping the Indians win the Calder Cup. Hoene played one more year with the CHL's Fort Worth Texans before retiring.
