Dwight King and a Roberto Luongo look-a-like contest


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.

Jordan Nolan, usually a man of few words, blurted out ‘Dwight King‘ when asked about the first thing that came to mind when we said ‘Roberto Luongo.’

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…

  2. JOCELYN Z says:

    OMG.. Doppelgänger!!!!

  3. Jason says:

    Luongo would want you to pump his tires not his brakes. lol

  4. Adrian Pacheco says:

    0.o yuup looks him

  5. Robyn says:

    Ya know, I can see it now. They could almost be twins if Kinger grew out his hair a bit lol. I never noticed it until now but now I can’t un-see it!

  6. William Maurer says:

    Disagree!!!

  7. Cristina says:

    We’ve been saying this forever. Finally someone else noticed.

  8. Art Guerrero says:

    Agree but king is a lil darker.

  9. Alex says:

    Disagree. One has a Stanley cup ring, the other doesn’t.

  10. Rich says:

    There’s a pro wrestler by the name Colt Cabana who looks similar to those two.

  11. Jensen says:

    Totally agree they look so much alike never thought of it before but now can’t stop thinking about it

  12. elijah quesada says:

    Hairline Check
    Ears Check
    Stanley Cup ………

  13. Romy says:

    Didn’t want to agree but I can see it side by side now. Same grin.

  14. Gabby Vyskocil says:

    Agree! There is a physical resemblance. But that’s where it ends. One has won a Cup, and the other never will.

  15. I agree, with the right hairstyling, they could be siblings.

  16. Sam Gomez says:

    I unfortunately agree :/

  17. Michal says:

    Luongo’s eyes are too close together and Dwight is rockin’ the fivehead.
    I don’t see it as much as Jordan does. I’ll still take Sacha Baron Cohen in “Talladega Nights” as Bobby Lu’s doppelgänger. And I’d love to chant “Lu-on-go” all day at him tomorrow!

  18. Dwreck says:

    Well this is weird! Cannot unsee!

  19. KCD says:

    AGREE

  20. c.esquivel says:

    Funny stuff

  21. Griffin says:

    Disagree

  22. J.J. says:

    There are some similarities but, one looks like a Stanley Cup Champion, the other looks like a wanna be Stanley Cup Champion.

  23. Russell Morgan says:

    Disagree, simply because its a Canucks player (plus they’re noses are different)

  24. David says:

    I agree

  25. Jeff says:

    The look like they could be long lost brothers. Only to be reunited through the great game of hockey. Except one is on a team with a cup and one is without. Go kings!

  26. Tim says:

    He does He does!! Sadly people say I look like Drew Carey when he was fat, either way I don’t wanna look like him

  27. Jason says:

    Absolutely agree. Cut luongos hair and bam. Crazy!

  28. Maggie says:

    W0W! But if you look closely, Dwight looks better than Luongo. :)

  29. greg says:

    while he may look similar, we all must remember we hate the canucks.

  30. shaun Lawson says:

    Disagree, eyes, nose and eyebrows are way different.

    One has a cup ring and one doesnt also!

  31. SouthBayFan says:

    It’s time to BURY the Canucks once and for all – let’s send the twins packing.

  32. Dustin Marvin says:

    I agree they look alike, but I think Luongo’s face will be a little longer then King’s after tomorrow.

  33. Lauren says:

    They look pretty similar

  34. pennersbeard says:

    Disagree. Luongo has more prominent cheek bones. I can see where everyone is coming from though.

  35. jeremy says:

    They have the same crooked smile. Someone should knock Luongo’s straight tomorrow.

  36. David Crumlish says:

    Kings game tomorrow is a huge 2 point game for both teams. Who wants them more??? Go Kings!!!

  37. Jose says:

    Don’t want to say it but agree. Go Kings Go!!

  38. DCS7 says:

    They do look like they could be cousins!

  39. Daniel says:

    Luongo looks like Borat’s twin.

  40. ian says:

    yes they do look alike, although lu has more hair.

  41. Max Loebach says:

    I agree…would be funny if Dwight grew his hair out.

  42. Chris says:

    Agree. The resemblance is eerie.

  43. Marissa says:

    But Luongo is no Stanley Cup Champ.

  44. Joel says:

    Agree

  45. Max Santa Cruz says:

    Agree

  46. Max Santa Cruz says:

    I agree

  47. Marissa says:

    Semi agreement, but Luongo is no Stanley Cup Champ.

  48. Kayla says:

    I agree that they look similar but King has that whole Stanley Cup ring thing going for him

  49. Tony says:

    Agree…. pretty damn close.

  50. Michael Ortiz says:

    I agree. Luongo looks like King more than King looks like Luongo.

  51. Ryan says:

    Agree. Put some hair on Kinger

  52. Aaron says:

    Agree. He looks like him no doubt.

  53. LombardiTool says:

    Definitely agree. The only way I can tell them apart is the championship ring!

  54. Giovanna says:

    Agree

  55. Kings Dad says:

    Luongo needs to eat more to be a King

  56. Christie says:

    Agree. Whoa.

  57. Phos Chek says:

    Disagree. Lunogo has to much more hair.

  58. 2 girls no cup sedins says:

    they look the same but we got the good looking one haha!

  59. Tom Avoian says:

    Eyes, nose, and ears are all wrong. Disagree.

  60. Tania iversen says:

    Just a lil! But Kinger looks better cause he’s a KING! There’s no other player like a KING player!

  61. Briyana says:

    Agree! They could pass for siblings!

  62. Chris Fording says:

    Highly agree!!!!

  63. Amanda Heveran says:

    Agree…king has little more of a tan though

  64. Tyler Patko says:

    They both have rather long faces and big eyes. They have the same hairline and head shape generally. King has bigger ears but they do look pretty similar. I agree.

  65. MP says:

    Agree

  66. Rob says:

    I actually agree on the physical attributes…same awesome ear to ear grin, but Bobby Lu has the nice flow going.

    Obviously one looks like a Stanley Cup champ, the other couldn’t finish the job.

    But we’ll tomorrow who comes out on top…my guess King goes top shelf on whoever is in net tomorrow afternoon.

  67. Janelle says:

    I can see the resemblance but King is more handsome than Luongo.

  68. Jen Dorkin says:

    Kinger has thicker eyebrows, less hair, different nose and more prominent ears (sorry) …but the eyes, crooked smile and overall look are very Luongo-esque!

  69. Alvaro says:

    Sure he does! Someone get that man a trapper.

  70. Trevor Clemente says:

    They basically look like twins In picture, but as far as real life, you don’t see the exact similarity without actually looking for it.

  71. Phillip Plank says:

    Ones got more rings though… Thats the difference!

  72. kevin says:

    Hate to admit it but it’s true

  73. Leslie Babikan says:

    Twins separated at birth!
