Capitals Acquire Left Wing D.J. King from St. Louis
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have acquired left wing D.J. King from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for prospect Stefan Della Rovere, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.

King, 26, is a 6’3”, 230-pound veteran of 101 NHL games. The Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, native has posted nine points (four goals, five assists) and 185 penalty minutes in his time with the Blues. He played 12 games in St. Louis and 10 games for Peoria of the American Hockey League (AHL) in 2009-10, seeing limited time due to a broken finger. He is under contract through the 2011-12 season.

Originally selected in the sixth round, 191st overall, by the Blues in the 2002 Entry Draft, King played junior hockey for Lethbridge and Kelowna in the Western Hockey League, topping 100 penalty minutes in each of his three seasons. He won the Memorial Cup with Kelowna in 2004.

Della Rovere was Washington’s seventh-round selection, 204th overall, in the 2008 Entry Draft.
