2018 conditional 4th round draft pick

More details and analysis to come shortly..

King is 27 years old and has played in 63 games this season. He has 8 goals and 7 assists for 15 penalty minuets King also brings post season experience having won the cup in both 2012 and 2014. He has scored 52 goals and 56 assists for a total of 108 points and 96 penalty minuets in 348 regular season games.

Here is the scouting report for Dwight King from The Hockey News Player Forecaster

ASSETS:
Has great size and the potential to play a dominating physical game in the corners (as well as in front of the opposing goal). Also has a little offensive ability, and he’s not bad defensively either.
FLAWS:
Needs to use his 6-4, 232-pound frame more to his advantage on a more consistent basis. Doesn’t own high-end skill and his skating is merely average (at best) for the National Hockey League level.
CAREER POTENTIAL:
Hulking, complementary winger.

The Canadians added another tough nosed physical player in this trade. I have been impressed with the kind of toughness grit and physicality that they have been able to add for their playoff run. This team is not one that I would be looking forward to facing in the post season.
