Topic - Dwight King
When Dwight King was asked his tiny hometown's most famous resident, he quipped that it was his brother, D.J. With a population less than 5,000, Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, doesn't have a lot of history to draw from.
"When he was a young kid, he's always been one of the top players in northern Saskatchewan and even Saskatchewan [as a whole]. I knew he could play a little bit," D.J. King said. "As I was making it into the NHL, he was just coming to the [Western Hockey League]. So I knew he could easily make it there if I did, for sure."
"He was gifted right from a young kid. He had hands. I didn't have that set of hands," D.J. King said.
