Really been building off of the solid play of the Sedins this season. Once again that goal in my mind was all Daniel, quick hands got the puck right on to the tape of King and he had an open space to shoot at.
I wish Daniel and Henrik would be able to pitch in a few more goals, however I'm sure that will come in due time.
King is a really good fit for the Sedins. Finally they have someone on their line who will go to the net and has good hands and creativity. King isn't really a flashy player(although his breakaway against the Flyers was pretty nice), but he's a hard worker, who has good speed, a good shot and will take abuse in front of the net to get a goal. For example, he scored a game winning goal against the Blues a couple weeks ago in which he was crosschecked about 7 or 8 times in front of the net before he shoveled a goal in on a rebound. He fell down numerous times but kept on getting up. King reminds me a lot of a faster, smaller version of Dave Andreychuk. Wouldn't that be nice if he could have a similar career...
in Boston. Wow. How did this kid with a nose for the net get overlooked for so long? Unbelievable.
I saw this guys for years in the Junior hockey league.. He wasnt in my favorite team but damn he looked good on the ice. He scored once 4 goals in a game againts my favorite team here in shawinigan. I knew he was a steal by the Canucks. You cant tell how good is a player if you dont see him play. Some of the fan here rate prospects they never saw .. lol
King wouldn't be nearly as good without the Sedins, and vice versa, that's the beautiful thing. About the Sedins finishing, I wouldn't complain if Hank got 8 goals and 50 assists . Does Hank even have 10 shots yet?
Jason King is making a habit out of surprising people and coming out of nowhere. He was selected in the 7th round of the 2001 NHL draft and responded by being the QMJHL's top goal-scorer, averaging more than a goal-a-game. The Canucks were pleasantly surprised and signed him to a minor-league contract, where he was expected to report to the ECHL. However at training camp he greatly impressed and surprised everyone once again. He earned himself a spot on the AHL Manitoba Moose. It was there that he once again surprised everyone, having an excellent rookie campaign with 20 goals and 20 assists in 67 games, and he earned himself a callup to the NHL. In less than a year he'd gone from the QMJHL to the NHL. In 8 games, he recorded 2 assists playing with the Sedins, and hockey experts remarked on the chemistry they had and the opportunities they created.
Jason King surprised us again this year with a wicked camp and has surprised again with 10 goals in 16 games. He's been setting new precedents for himself consistently, and it's been a ride that Canucks fans have been allowed to join in on. However, King wouldn't be nearly as good as he is without the Sedins, but that's a two-way road. He helps them as much as they do him. The difference between Klatt and King is King goes to the net; he finishes off the plays the Sedins start. Klatt simply kept the cycle going. King's nose for the net is what completes this line.
