Blackhawks' King Grabs Two Assists In Game 7 Win

News: Dwight King gathered two helpers in Sunday's Game 7 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Both of Dwight King's assists were of the secondary variety, giving him four points over the final three games of the series. The 24-year-old has been otherwise quiet for the Kings in their three series victories, amassing only four points over the team's other 18 contests during the playoffs.

King Nearing Return For Los Angeles

News: Dwight King (upper body) has practiced for a full week now and should return to the lineup soon, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The Dwight Kings play back-to-back games starting Wednesday, and King figures to be a possibility for at least one of those games. He's been out since March 29, but Wednesday's morning skate should help determine when he'll return.

LA's King Skates Saturday Morning

News: Dwight King (undisclosed) took the ice for Saturday's morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Dwight King hasn't played since March 29 but may slot back in Saturday against the Canucks. He's been surprisingly productive this season, notching 14 goals and 15 assists in 74 games.

Analysis: Dwight King has not played since March 29, but he participated in Saturday's morning skate and seems close to returning. With the Kings headed for a three-day break, King is a good bet to return for the team's next game, Wednesday in Calgary.

King Still Uncertain For Los Angeles

News: Dwight King (undisclosed) was back on the ice Tuesday, but didn't put a timetable on his return to the lineup, the Los Angeles Times reports. "Right now, it just wasn't worth it," King said. "I'm fortunate we do have these two weeks here [before the playoffs] trying to get myself back to where I feel I can help the team. That's my main goal. Not going to put a date or game in mind."
Analysis: The Dwight Kings can afford to be a little cautious with King, given their position in the standings, so consider him day-to-day.

LA's King Out Monday With Minor Issue

News: Dwight King (undisclosed) is not playing in Monday's game against the Wild, but his injury is not particularly serious, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Dwight King remains day-to-day and seems likely to return before the end of the regular season. The Kings don't have a ton left to play for, as they're highly unlikely to move any higher than the 5-seed or any lower than the 6-seed.

Dwight King

King Iffy For Los Angeles On Monday

News: Dwight King (unspecified issue) is questionable for Monday's game against the Wild, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With Dwight King not on the ice Monday morning, Jordan Nolan skated on the team's third line in place of King.

L.A.'s King Rejoins Team

News: Dwight King (personal) rejoined the team Saturday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Dwight King will presumably be back in the lineup Saturday against the Jets after missing Thursday's tilt with the Penguins to attend to a family matter.

Dwight King

Kings' King Out For Personal Reasons Thursday

News: Dwight King (personal) will not play Thursday against the Penguins, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Dwight King is away from the team to attend to a family matter. Hopefully the personal affair won't keep him off the ice for too long, as he's enjoyed nice production of late -- four points in his last three games.

Dwight King, LW, LA King On Small Streak For Los Angeles

Dwight King

King On Small Streak For Los Angeles

News: Dwight King scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's shootout win over Washington, giving him points in three straight.
Analysis: He's also plus-5 in that span, nicely rounding out the latest little run of offense that Dwight King's seen this year. He's largely been scoring his points in clumps of two or three games this year, with several lengthy slumps in between.

LA's King Tallies Game-Winner Monday

News: Dwight King notched the game-winning goal in Monday's 3-2 victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: Dwight King found the net with 9:24 remaining in the third period, allowing Los Angeles to regain the lead after the Flyers had rallied for two goals earlier in the frame to tie things up. The 24-year-old now has a point in consecutive games, but that was preceded by a nine-game scoreless streak.

L.A.'s King In Midst Of Massive Swoon

News: Dwight King enters the Olympic break with just two points in his last 15 games.
Analysis: The Los Angeles offense has collectively sputtered of late, and Dwight King hasn't been immune to that drop in productivity. He was a chic waiver wire pickup in late December after totaling eight points during a nine-game period, but it's probably safe for fantasy owners outside of deep leagues to cut the cord at this point.

L.A.'s King Puts Up Three In Win

News: Dwight King had a goal and two assists in Saturday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: Dwight King has just 14 points on the season, but he's now compiled two three-point games after he previously netted a hat trick in October. His latest outburst snapped a six-game scoring skid.

King Tallies Shorty For Kings

News: Dwight King scored his seventh goal of the year, a shorthanded tally, in Tuesday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Dwight King keeps on finding twine -- he's done so three times in his last five games as he's continued to surprise the Kings as well as fantasy players. He's already set a new career high in goals, such as it is, and should easily eclipse his career high of 14 points as the season goes on; he's tallied nine thus far.

Kings' King Continues Career Seasson

News: Dwight King scored the winning goal on Friday in Los Angeles's 2-0 win over New Jersey, giving King a career-best six goals on the season.
Analysis: Dwight King might not score many goals easier than the one he nabbed on Friday, standing uncontested in front of Cory Schneider for a tip of a point shot. King is one of the Kings' top defensive forwards and will deliver solid play at both ends of the ice, albeit without much of it showing up in the box score.

Kings' King Is King For One Night

News: Dwight King scored on all three shots he took Thursday for his first career hat trick in a win over Phoenix.
Analysis: He'd managed just one point (a goal) in 10 games entering play Thursday, making his hat trick perhaps the most unpredictable event of the night. Expect him to return to his usual fantasy contributions, which can best be described as nothing.

King Scores In Los Angeles Win

News: Dwight King scored Los Angeles only reguation goal in Friday's shootout win over Carolina, nabbing a shorthanded tally for his first goal of the season.
Analysis: Dwight King is one of LA's more important checking forwards but won't score too many goals. He's more valuable to Los Angeles than to most fantasy rosters.

King Nets Two Points For Kings In Loss

News: Dwight King collected a power-play goal and an assist Saturday.
Analysis: Dwight King doesn't figure to see much power play time in the regular season and only managed 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 47 games last season so don't expect this kind of output on a nightly basis.

King Re-Signs With Los Angeles

News: Dwight King signed a two-year deal to remain in Los Angeles on Monday, lakingsinsider.com reports.
Analysis: Dwight King played a key role in the Kings' Stanley Cup run, scoring five goals and adding three assists as Los Angeles won its first title in franchise history.

King Scores Twice As Los Angeles Takes Game 1

News: Dwight King picked up a pair of goals in the Kings' Game 1 win over the Coyotes on Sunday.
Analysis: Dwight King now has three goals in his last three games but don't count on that kind of production going forward.

No Disciplinary Hearing Scheduled For L.A.'s King

News: There is currently no disciplinary hearing scheduled for Dwight King after he checked the Blues' Alex Pietrangelo from behind in Saturday's Game 1, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It doesn't look like the NHL will suspend Dwight King for his hit. Pietrangelo was unable to practice Sunday, and his availability remains in question for Monday's tilt.

Dwight King

Supplemental Discipline For Kings' King?

News: Dwight King's hit from behind on the Blues' Alex Pietrangelo late in the second period of Game 1 on Saturday may be examined by the league for supplemental discipline.
Analysis: Pietrangelo was not on the bench for the start of the third and his return was deemed questionable by in-game announcers on TSN. Dwight King received a two-minute minor for the hit but it could have easily been a five-minute major given the ugliness of it.

Goal, Assist For Kings' King

News: Dwight King picked up his first NHL goal and first NHL assist Sunday against Dallas.
Analysis: Congratulations to Dwight King on his first career points, but he's not a player who is likely to have any fantasy value anytime soon, as he is far from a highly thought of prospect.
