The Los Angeles Kings have resigned forward Dwight King to a 2 year contract.
King got the call from Manchester on February 10th that he and teammate Jordan Nolan have been called up to the big leagues. The move was made to add a new element to the Kings, who, at the time, were having scoring troubles that left them at the bottom of the league in scoring.
In 27 games through the 2011-2012 regular season, King contributed 14 points (5g, 9a). In 20 playoffs games, King totaled 8 points (5g, 3a); 4 of those goals were scored against the Phoenix Coyotes in the Western Conference Finals that lasted 5 games. The 5 goals were tied for first in the playoffs in rookie goals; 2 game winning goals put him second in rookies GWGs.
This signing means that the team that won the cup is coming back completely intact, with exception of Scott Parse, who played on 9 games in the 2011-2012 season.
