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…

Omg… Never saw it before, but i can’t stop thinking about it now!
JOCELYN Z says
Luongo would want you to pump his tires not his brakes. lol
Adrian Pacheco says
0.o yuup looks him
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!
William Maurer says
We’ve been saying this forever. Finally someone else noticed.
Art Guerrero says
Agree but king is a lil darker.
Disagree. One has a Stanley cup ring, the other doesn’t.
There’s a pro wrestler by the name Colt Cabana who looks similar to those two.
Totally agree they look so much alike never thought of it before but now can’t stop thinking about it
elijah quesada says
Stanley Cup ………
Didn’t want to agree but I can see it side by side now. Same grin.
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.
John Hoven says
Thanks for the feedback. Please check your email.
Matthew Nelson says
I agree, with the right hairstyling, they could be siblings.
Sam Gomez says
I unfortunately agree :/
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!
Well this is weird! Cannot unsee!
There are some similarities but, one looks like a Stanley Cup Champion, the other looks like a wanna be Stanley Cup Champion.
Russell Morgan says
Disagree, simply because its a Canucks player (plus they’re noses are different)
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!
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
Absolutely agree. Cut luongos hair and bam. Crazy!
W0W! But if you look closely, Dwight looks better than Luongo. 🙂
while he may look similar, we all must remember we hate the canucks.
shaun Lawson says
Disagree, eyes, nose and eyebrows are way different.
One has a cup ring and one doesnt also!
It’s time to BURY the Canucks once and for all – let’s send the twins packing.
Dustin Marvin says
I agree they look alike, but I think Luongo’s face will be a little longer then King’s after tomorrow.
They look pretty similar
Disagree. Luongo has more prominent cheek bones. I can see where everyone is coming from though.
They have the same crooked smile. Someone should knock Luongo’s straight tomorrow.
David Crumlish says
Kings game tomorrow is a huge 2 point game for both teams. Who wants them more??? Go Kings!!!
Don’t want to say it but agree. Go Kings Go!!
They do look like they could be cousins!
Luongo looks like Borat’s twin.
yes they do look alike, although lu has more hair.
Max Loebach says
I agree…would be funny if Dwight grew his hair out.
Agree. The resemblance is eerie.
But Luongo is no Stanley Cup Champ.
Max Santa Cruz says
Max Santa Cruz says
Semi agreement, but Luongo is no Stanley Cup Champ.
I agree that they look similar but King has that whole Stanley Cup ring thing going for him
Agree…. pretty damn close.
Michael Ortiz says
I agree. Luongo looks like King more than King looks like Luongo.
Agree. Put some hair on Kinger
Agree. He looks like him no doubt.
Definitely agree. The only way I can tell them apart is the championship ring!
Kings Dad says
Luongo needs to eat more to be a King
Phos Chek says
Disagree. Lunogo has to much more hair.
2 girls no cup sedins says
they look the same but we got the good looking one haha!
Tom Avoian says
Eyes, nose, and ears are all wrong. Disagree.
Tania iversen says
Just a lil! But Kinger looks better cause he’s a KING! There’s no other player like a KING player!
Agree! They could pass for siblings!
Chris Fording says
Amanda Heveran says
Agree…king has little more of a tan though
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.
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.
I can see the resemblance but King is more handsome than Luongo.
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!
Sure he does! Someone get that man a trapper.
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.
Phillip Plank says
Ones got more rings though… Thats the difference!
Hate to admit it but it’s true
Leslie Babikan says
Twins separated at birth!
