The Los Angeles Blades were a professional inline hockey team based in Los Angeles, California. The Blades played in Roller Hockey International from 1993-1997 and played their home games at the Great Western Forum.

Two other franchises have used the name Los Angeles Blades: the Pacific Hockey League team in 1978-79 and the Western Hockey League team from 1961 to 1967.

Franchise historyEdit

The Blades were one of 12 original RHI teams and were owned by Jeannie Buss, daughter of Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss. They played a summer schedule at the Great Western Forum, which was then the home of the NBA's Lakers and the NHL's Los Angeles Kings. RHI suspended operations after the 1997 season, and when it turned in 1999, with eight teams, the Blades were not among them. RHI folded, for good, after the 1999 season.
