LA Kings – Dwight King Signs For 2 Years = The Roster is Complete!

Posted on July 16, 2012 by


Dwight King was the only member of the Los Angeles Kings  Stanley Cup winning team to have yet to sign. Luckily for King and us, he signed his contract today for 2 years at $1.5 million or $750,000. per year. I’d say that’s a deal and a steal! Way to go King, we are so happy to have you.

Dwight “Kinger” King had quite the playoffs for the Kings. To familiarize yourself with his assists and goals, etc. I found this updated stat box over at Hockeydatabase.com. You can also click on the teams for the roster and stats of other players as well:
