Centre Warren Holmes spent parts of three seasons with the LA Kings in the early 80s. He was a top point producer in junior and the minors but he never took hold of a long term NHL job.

Born in Beeton, Ontario Warren Holmes was chosen 85th overall by the Kings after playing three years with the Ottawa 67’s of the OHA. In 1977 the talented pivot helped his team reach the Memorial Cup final where they succumbed to the New Westminster Bruins. The next year he notched 48 goals as a rookie pro with the Saginaw Gears of the IHL. He continued to play most of his hockey in the “I” and helped Saginaw win the Turner Cup in 1981.

By the 1981-82 season Holmes was elevated to the King’s AHL affiliate, the New Haven Nighthawks. He scored 28 goals, played reasonably well defensive and was recalled to the NHL for three games. The next year he split his time between New Haven and the NHL but the Kings disappointed by missing the playoffs. Holmes only played three games for LA the next season but potted 26 goals in the AHL. He then returned to the IHL for two years before retiring in 1986.
