Dwight King, LW, LA King Has Three-Game Point Streak For Kings

Dwight King

King Has Three-Game Point Streak For Kings

News: Dwight King tallied the Kings' lone regulation goal in Monday's shootout loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Dwight King has helped buoy the Los Angeles attack with points in three consecutive games, with Monday's marker evening his goal and assist totals at 13 apiece for the season. He's been an adequate replacement for Tanner Pearson in the Kings' new iteration of "That 70s Line," but in coach Darryl Sutter's conservative, two-way system, King is unlikely to ever post eye-popping numbers. His value remains limited to deeper formats, even amid his hot streak.

Kings' King Snaps Out of Funk With Assist

News: Dwight King collected an assist Tuesday, helping his team to a 4-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: With just over a minute elapsed in the third period, Dwight King threaded a horizontal pass to Jeff Carter, who proceeded to put the puck past goalie Cam Talbot. King had been without a point in 15 consecutive games heading into Tuesday's battle, adding more evidence to the notion that he's a streaky player. Still, even though he's not the King of the Kings from an offensive standpoint, this is a player who could heat up on short notice given that he skates on a line with Carter and Tyler Toffoli, a pair that has combined for 47 goals this year.

Dwight King, LW, LA King Extends Point Streak To Five For In LA Win

Dwight King

King Extends Point Streak To Five For In LA Win

News: Dwight King extended his point streak to five games with an assist in a win over Colorado on Wednesday.
Analysis: Dwight King is showing some nice chemistry with line mates Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli on the Kings' second line, combining for 32 points in 10 games since the All-Star break.

Dwight King, LW, LA King Sets Up Two Scores for Los Angeles

Dwight King

King Sets Up Two Scores for Los Angeles

News: Dwight King tallied two assists in Monday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Dwight King has lit up opponents to the tune of seven points in his last four appearances, while displaying sound chemistry with Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli on the team's second line. Keep an eye on King as he has plenty of positive momentum going for a team that has won five straight contests.

Dwight King, LW, LA Kings' King Scores For Third Straight Game

Dwight King

Kings' King Scores For Third Straight Game

News: Dwight King scored for the third straight game and had seven shots on goal in Saturday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Playing on the second line, Dwight King has been red-hot of late, tallying five points (three goals) in his last three games. With 10 goals in 56 games, King is a solid depth scorer who should be looked at in very deep leagues.

Dwight King

King Contributes Two Points For Los Angeles

News: Dwight King posted his second consecutive two-point effort Thursday, notching a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over Calgary.
Analysis: He also had a goal and an assist Monday in Columbus -- this following a 12-game stretch in which he recorded one point. Despite this sudden outburst, it's unwise to count on Dwight King to continue producing for fantasy purposes.

2/9/2015

Dwight King, LW, LA

Dwight King

Kings' King Gets Goal And Assist In Win

News: Dwight King registered a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: It's just the second time in the last 13 games that Dwight King has worked his way on to the scoresheet, and the two points bring him up to 15 on the season. The winger is a productive player for the Kings, but that hasn't always translated to enough success to warrant consideration among fantasy owners.

Dwight King, LW, LA

Dwight King

Kings' King Productive Wednesday

News: Dwight King finished Wednesday's 4-3 win against the Blackhawks with a plus-2 rating and an assist.
Analysis: This was an impressive showing from Dwight King, a player who rarely makes waves in the fantasy realm. Apparent is King's energy on the ice but he shouldn't draw a serious look among fantasy hockey pickups unless he can start to establish any kind of offensive rhythm.

Dwight King

Kings' King Snipes Two Goals Saturday

News: Dwight King found twine twice Saturday while firing six shots on goal and skating to a plus-2 in a wild 7-6 loss to the visiting Predators.
Analysis: That's seven goals on the year and three in the last two games for Dwight King, who was set up by Anze Kopitar and Jake Muzzin on both strikes in this one. The 25-year-old is slightly off the pace that featured 15 goals and 15 assists in 77 games last year, but if he keeps seeing time with Kopitar, look for an uptick in production.

Dwight King

LA's King Sent To Return To Lineup

News: Dwight King is expected to rejoin the Los Angeles lineup Tuesday against the Panthers, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Dwight King was a healthy scratch in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Ducks, marking the first game the forward has missed this season. He's only supplied two goals and five points in 17 games, but it doesn't appear he's in danger of surrendering a regular role just yet to Jordan Nolan or Andy Andreoff, the Kings' regular healthy scratches at forward. King is expected to play on the second line Tuesday, joining Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli.

Dwight King

King Scores First Of Year In Kings Win

News: Dwight King scored his first of the season in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: After posting career highs in goals and assists with 15 in each, the 25-year-old seemed primed to build on those numbers this season. He's gotten off to a rough start though, with just two points in eight games, and while that should improve, he may not reach his 30 point total from a year ago.

Dwight King

King Re-Signs with Kings

News: Dwight King signed a three-year, $5.85 million deal to remain with the Kings on Wednesday, LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: The two sides completed the deal just in time to avoid a salary arbitration hearing that was set for Friday. Coming off of his best NHL season in which he played 77 games, Dwight King was productive cog in the machine for the Stanley Cup champs. He netted 15 goals along with 30 points, and had an overall rating of plus-16 when he was on the ice.

L.A.'s King: Six Points In Last Five Games

News: Dwight King continued to play unlikely hero this postseason with a goal and an assist in a 5-4, double overtime win over the Rangers on Saturday. He has six points, including four assists, in his last five games.
Analysis: He makes the most of limited ice time and has 10 points in 23 postseason games.

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 Scores In Return For Los Angeles

News: Dwight King (upper body) scored a goal in his return to the lineup Wednesday.
Analysis: It was Dwight King's 15th goal of the season, and he now has five points (three goals, two assists) in his last five games. He had been out since March 29.

Dwight King

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.

Dwight King

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.

Dwight King

Kings' King Out Saturday

News: Dwight King (upper body) will not play Saturday at Vancouver, LAKingsInsider.com reports.
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.

Dwight King

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.

Dwight King

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.

Dwight 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.

3/25/2014

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.
