Rookie Dwight King of the Los Angeles Kings may not have great fantasy value but he is impressing coach Darryl Sutter so far this season.

"He’s been pretty good the whole time," Sutter said. "He goes about his business every night. He doesn’t sand out, but … it’s good to see him rewarded for goals. He’s our most-solid left winger night in and night out." King had three goals in the Kings' 7-4 win over Phoenix Thursday but don't expect that to happen often. He's more of a grinder than a scorer.

Dwight King has a goal and four assists in his last seven games.

That's not bad, especially considering King had no points in his first 12 games. He is a fringe fantasy player in the deepest of leagues at this time and only because of his recent streak.
