Playing career

King was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League in the 7th round (212th overall) of the 2001 entry draft, after having played 3 seasons for the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL. He found some success playing with twin brothers Henrik and Daniel Sedin in his first full season with the team, registering 12 goals in 2003–04, the bulk of which came in the team's first few games. This led him to being awarded the NHL Rookie of the Month award for the month of November The line quickly earned the nickname "The Mattress Line," due to its members figuratively composing "two twins and a king." He spent the 2004–05 season playing for Vancouver's American Hockey League affiliated team, the Manitoba Moose, where he suffered a serious concussion - one that took him many months to recover from.

After refusing to sign the Canucks' qualifying offer for the 2006–07 season, King opted to play for Skellefteå AIK in the Swedish elite league Elitserien. His rights were traded to the Anaheim Ducks on June 23, 2007, in exchange for Ryan Shannon. In the 2007–08 season, King made his return to the NHL playing in four games with the Ducks although he primarily played for their affiliate, the Portland Pirates, of the AHL.

On June 1, 2008 he signed a one-year contract with Adler Mannheim of the German Elite League and left the team on 13 May 2009 to sign with League rivals Hamburg Freezers.
