LOS ANGELES – The 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings have signed forward Dwight King to a two-year contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

King, 23 (turned 23 on July 5), collected 14 points (5-9=14), 10 penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating in 27 regular season games this past season. He was recalled by the Kings from the Manchester Monarchs (AHL) on February 10 after registering 29 points (11-18=29), 20 penalty minutes and plus-6 rating in 50 AHL regular season games with Manchester. At the time of his recall, King was tied for second in points and second in assists on the Monarchs.

King, a 6-3, 234-pound native of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, earned his first career NHL points (a goal and an assist) in his eighth career NHL game at Dallas on February 12.

During the Kings 2012 run to the Stanley Cup championship, King collected five goals, eight points (5-3=8), 13 penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating. He ranked tied for first in goals scored during the postseason and tied for second in postseason game-winning goals scored (2) amongst rookies in 2012, and four of his five postseason goals were scored against Phoenix in the Western Conference Final series.

Originally selected by the Kings in the fourth-round (109th overall) in the 2007 NHL Draft, King has 14 points (5-9=14), 12 penalty minutes and a plus-1 rating in 33 career NHL regular season games – all with the Kings. He made his NHL debut with the Kings on November 17, 2010, vs. Columbus.

24 Players on the NHL Roster... crazy depth and still an outside shot at Doan (not holding my breath though)

Very cool. Can't wait to see the complete Cup roster back in action for another season. Hopefully it will be full redemption for last year, and a healthy Gange and Carter.

King really showed signs of becoming a power forward that can score 20 goals a season.

The two year term seems about right as it gives both the team and the player a chance to see if he has reached his full potential by then.

I want King to play like he played in the playoffs. Fight against Crombeen, devastating check in the Jersey series that led to a goal and 5 goals most in traffic areas. That's the guy I want to see.

Crazy how how many of Kings goals were the Kings getting a goal right back after giving one up and/or breaking a tie score. Great stuff.

That's because everyone else is on vacation.

He's an RFA with no arbitration rights. Getting a 1-way contract is big enough for him (and not a big deal for Dean since he wouldn't pass through waivers anyways).

I actually thought Nolan was the superior of the two since they got called up, but King proved himself in the playoffs and I like this new contract.

It's only been two weeks since the start of free agency, did it really take long? Had it been August or September, I would consider it to be long. The Kings may have wanted more years (like they did when they locked up guys like Zeiler and Drewiske to four year deals).

I recall only three times that they allowed back-to-back goals in the playoffs, the 3 game 4's. Even then, the one in the finals had an EN involved.

He's also a very powerful skater. We read and heard a lot about his slow skating but once he gets going it doesn't look very slow and it doesn't look like anyone's able to stop him from reaching his destination. He's hard to move off the puck. This is a great contract, by the end of it we could easily be talking about a 35-40 point player.

That's exactly why there wasn't a ton of suspense in every series leading up to the final. If they weren't up 3-0 in a series, they were either up in every game or bounced back with a goal fairly quickly.
