GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Coyotes host the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday in a battle of teams with the worst records in the Western Conference.

Each team has dropped five straight games and each team will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year.

The Kings (26-40-14) hold a three-point edge over the Coyotes (29-45-5) in the Pacific Division.

The teams each have three wins against each other, one of them coming in a shootout for the Kings. Phoenix won the most recent contest at Los Angeles, 3-2, on January 20.

The Phoenix Coyotes will induct former Winnipeg Jets center Dale Hawerchuk into the club's Ring of Honor in a pre-game ceremony. Hawerchuk will join Bobby Hull (No. 9) and Thomas Steen (No. 25) as the only players to be inducted into the Coyotes' Ring of Honor.

Hawerchuk was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets with the first pick in the 1981 draft and went on to play nine seasons (1981-1990) with Winnipeg, appearing in 713 games and recording 379 goals, 550 assists and 929 points. He ranks as the franchise leader in goals and points and ranks second in assists.
