The question Friday was specifically about the struggles of Kings forward Dwight King. But coach Darryl Sutter used it as a chance to speak about the overall lack of scoring depth from the Kings to start the season. He wouldn’t single out King.
Said Sutter: “I think Dustin Penner, Dwight King, Simon Gagne, Brad Richardson — who else hasn’t scored a goal this year? — I’m not isolating Dwight King. We would have a little better record if one of them or all of them would have one more goal. We’re into 20-something percent of the season … I don’t think that having no goals is beneficial to wondering where a player is. Playing up to his capabilities or not (is important).”
