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