One of the reasons we’re so fond of our Word Association segment is that it can be akin to sifting for gold. Amid the typical media questions – that some players find ridiculously boring – the format can suddenly produce a hidden treasure. And that’s what happened as we gathered comments to use in our pre-game article for tonight’s Kings at Cancuks game.
Pump the brakes! We need some more input on this one.
“He needs to get longer hair and slick it back,” said Colin Fraser. “He’s a big guy like Luongo though. So, if he had longer hair, I could see it.”
Kyle Clifford seemed to agree, saying – “If Kinger had a little more hair, maybe.”
Meanwhile, Dwight’s older brother, DJ King, who is now playing with the Ontario Reign (Kings’ ECHL affiliate), told us there’s actually more to the story.
“I agree with them,” DJ began, when told that several members of the Kings thinks his brother looks like Luongo. “He’s just has that Roberto look for sure. He was bugged about that growing up too. Everybody says he looks like Roberto. I’m not sure it’s such a bad thing either.”
So what does the man himself think of the comparison?
“He’s a great looking guy,” Dwight said with a big smile. “He has a little more Italian in him than me. But, he has a nice look to his face.”
Alrighty then, moving along…
