NHLer D.J. King Joins the Reign
Ontario picks up experienced winger

 
ONTARIO, Calif. - The Ontario Reign, defending Pacific Division Champions and proud affiliate of the NHL's 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, announced they have added former St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals winger, D.J. King, to their roster.

King spent the bulk of the 2011-12 season playing for Hershey of the AHL. In 29 games with the Bears, King recorded four points (0g, 4a). He also accumulated 13 penalty minutes and was a -7. King also skated in four playoff games with Hershey, tallying one point (1g, 0a).  He also had a one-game appearance with the Washington Capitals.


The 28-year-old King was a sixth-round draft pick of the St. Louis Blues as the 190th overall selection of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.  A native of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, King played in a total of 101 games with the Blues where he scored four goals and assisted on five for a total of nine points.

King played an additional 16 games with the Washington Capitals during the 2010-11 season.  While there, he added two assists and 30 penalty minutes to his NHL totals.
The 6-foot-3, 231 pound left winger last skated in the ECHL during the 2005-06 season, when he played in five games for the Alaska Aces.

King made his professional debut after three seasons in the Western Hockey League, split between the Lethbridge Hurricanes and the Kelowna Rockets, playing in 183 games, scoring 86 points (38g, 48a). In his final junior season with Kelowna, he helped the Rockets capture the 2004 Memorial Cup.

King is expected to dress tonight and will wear number 19 against the Stockton Thunder.
