Dwight King’s first NHL stint ends.

Dwight King was assigned by the Kings to the Manchester Monarchs on Wednesday, ending the first NHL stint of any former Reign player.

King, a 21-year-old left wing, went scoreless with two penalty minutes in six games with the Kings. He started on the fourth line, played briefly on the first line, went back to the fourth line, and was not wearing the jersey of any of the top four lines at the Kings’ practice Tuesday.

The move comes one year (actually a year and a day) after he was first promoted from the Reign to the American Hockey League.
