    Kings' Dwight King: Scores against Avalanche

    King scored a goal and added an assist despite playing just 10:53 in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche. The third-line winger made the Kings proud by picking up his fifth and six points of the season, but his career .34 point-per-game career pace suggests his decent output through 14 games is nothing more than a small-sample fluke. Even with his foot injury behind him, King doesn't have enough offensive skills to be a difference-maker in standard leagues.

    Kings' Dwight King: Gets on scoresheet in season debut Tuesday

    King made his season debut Tuesday, netting a goal and an assist in a win over the Oilers. King slotted in on the third line, where the trio including Trevor Lewis and Dustin Brown combined for eight points in the victory. King had yet to play a game all season after breaking a bone in his foot on Oct. 5. The 26-year-old is coming off a 13-goal, 26-point campaign in 2014-15 and should be a reliable bottom-six scorer on a Kings team that has won three straight games and holds an 11-point lead in the Pacific Division.

    Kings' Dwight King: Resumes skating Wednesday

    King (foot) skated on his own Wednesday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. King's return to the ice Wednesday is a big step in the right direction in his recovery from a broken bone in his foot, but he's still likely a ways away from returning to game action, as he'll need to log a number of full practices before returning to the Kings' lineup. A more definitive timetable for King's return should be established once the 26-year-old winger is able to return to practice with his teammates.
