Dwayne "D.J." King (born June 27, 1984) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger currently playing for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

He was drafted in the 6th round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, 190th overall, by the St. Louis Blues. As a junior from the Western Hockey League's, Lethbridge Hurricanes and Kelowna Rockets King, known as an enforcer, spent his first two professional seasons within the Blues organization with affiliates in the American Hockey League and ECHL.

He made his NHL debut in the 2006–07 season on October 5, 2006 against the San Jose Sharks. King was then re-assigned to play a majority of the year with AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen. As first recall with the Blues and after being held scoreless in his first 24 NHL games, King scored his first career goal against Curtis Joseph in a 5-2 victory of the Phoenix Coyotes on April 4, 2007.

He finished with 27 games for the Blues during the season, registering two points (one goal, one assist) along with 52 penalty minutes.

King's 2008–09 season was ruined by a season-ending shoulder injury playing only one game for the Blues. He returned for the 2009–10 season, easily defeating Krys Barch in his first game of the season. However, King broke an already-damaged finger on his hand in the fight, sidelining him for several months.

On July 28, 2010, King was re-signed to a two-year contract extension with the Blues in order to facilitate a trade to the Washington Capitals for Stefan Della Rovere.
