      Kings' Dwight King: Remains on schedule for return

      King (foot) will remain in a soft boot for about two more weeks before resuming training, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports. After breaking a bone in his foot on October 5, King was expected to miss 8-to-10 weeks, and he appears to be on schedule with this timeline. It will still be a while before his return, but expect him to slot back into the Kings' lineup as a third-line left wing when he does.
