Dwight King won't be offered a new contract by the Montreal Canadiens.

King has completed a three-year, $5,850,000 deal and will test the free agent waters. He had nine goals and 16 points in 80 games between Los Angeles and Montreal in 2016-17. Montreal gave Los Angeles a conditional fourth round draft pick in exchange for King that would have become a third-round pick had they opted to re-sign King.

Dwight King found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

King was parked at the Lightning's blue line when Artturi Lehkonen hit him with a perfect stretch pass. The power forward then beat Tampa's Andrei Vasilevskiy five hole. King was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings on trade deadline day, but this was his first goal as a member of the Canadiens. He's up to nine goals and seven assists in 79 games this season. He won't be relevant in playoff fantasy leagues.

Dwight King scored the go-ahead goal and added another 25 seconds later in the third as the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Islanders 4-2 Wednesday night.

The game was tight until a flurry of goals by the Islanders in the third. Alec Martinez scored first in the opening period and then the game went scoreless through the second. The Islanders’ Anders Lee tied the game at 4:27 in the third and it was only at the very end that the shooters became unstoppable. King’s back-to-back goals at 17:07 and 17:32 were followed less than 20 seconds later by a Jake Muzzin shot into an empty net at 17:51. This was one of those games where fantasy owners don’t want to stop watching until the points’ totals are tallied.

King has two goals and three assists in 15 games.

Dwight King will ascend back up to LA's first line in Friday's Game 5 against San Jose.

King will skate to the left of Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik, just has he did in Game 3's victory. Despite playing on the top line and skating in each game, King is still without a point in the series.

Dwight King picked up his second goal in four games during Thursday's 3-2 win over Montreal.

Who says grinders don't have a scoring touch? Go find a highlight and watch King fake a slapper and open up Ben Scrivens' five-hole for the beauty of a tally. King is now up to seven goals and 12 points in 28 games this season.
