The Montreal Canadiens are gearing up for the playoffs, picking up another gritty, playoff-type player.
A day after acquiring Steve Ott from Detroit, GM Marc Bergevin has picked up winger Dwight King from the LA Kings in exchange for a fourth round pick in 2018.
It’s a good acquisition for the Canadiens, but it’s kind of a shame that a player named King has left the Kings.

King has 15 points (8-7-15) in 63 games this season, and has 108 points (52-56-108) in his 348-game career.
But it is the playoffs where King tends to shine. He has 25 points (10-15-25) in 69-career playoff games, and two Stanley Cup rings.
