Kong!

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Unless you have been invited to the home of Donna and Dwayne King, or the residence of their eldest son D.J., the best place in Meadow Lake, Sask., to watch a Los Angeles Kings’ game these days is at the Milltown Sports Bar on 9th Street.

Meadow Lake, population 5,045, is the hometown of Kings’ rookie sensation Dwight King. His No. 74 sweater has yet to be added to the collection that hangs inside the Milltown haunt, that includes three other NHLers from Meadow Lake, but manager Darcy Friesen said that if Dwight brings a Kings sweater back home this summer, they will be more than pleased to find some wall space.

“There is a buzz here with Dwight and the Kings playing so well,” said Friesen, a distant relative to Jeff Friesen, whose New Jersey Devils’ sweater hangs inside the Milltown beside D.J.’s St. Louis Blues’ jersey, and one from Blake Comeau’s days with the New York Islanders.

“I know when I come in here for breakfast people are talking about Dwight. They come in here specifically to watch the games, too. It has been exciting.”

  2. Hmm, I need to organize a Seattle watch party for our Kings!!

  3. Outstanding. Maybe we can chip in and buy a blow up hockey Kong figurine that can go appropriately in Meadow Lake, that resembles this:

    Notice the size of this blow up, as it is far bigger than autos on this highway.

    To me, that is how big King has been for us this season and playoffs.

    All we need is the whole Kings uniform ensemble.

    What would look best, the home black, or away white, or maybe the beloved purple and gold?

    GO KINGS GO!!!
