Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued to make waves in Los Angeles on Thursday as NHL team the LA Kings joked they could use the striker's talents on the ice.

Ibrahimovic enjoyed a dream debut for LA Galaxy last weekend, coming off the bench to smash home a spectacular long-range equaliser before heading the winner in a breathless 4-3 comeback win over LAFC in their inaugural derby encounter.

Basking in being talk of the town, the 36-year-old former Inter, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United star attended the Kings' 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild.

He took part in a kickabout with some of the Kings players beforehand and, during a tense finish to the game, Ibrahimovic was asked for his assistance.

"Hey, Ibra, thing you could get some skates on and help us finish out the end of this game? #GoKingsGo," read a tweet from LA Kings' official account.

Ibrahimovic has dubbed himself a "Lion" and was also able to make acquaintance with another of his kind – Kings' mascot Bailey.
