Right-winger Steven King was a solid two-way performer who played 67 games with the New York Rangers and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1990s. He also excelled in college, the AHL, and the IHL.
King scored 38 times in two seasons for Brown University from 1989 to 1991. He was the Rangers' first choice in the 1991 Supplemental Draft and was dispatched to Binghamton of the AHL to ease he way into the pro game. King played with confidence while scoring 42 points in 66 games and was given a better chance of making the NHL the next year.
King played 24 games as a rookie with the Rangers in 1992-93 but was particularly dominant in Binghamton where he scored 35 goals in 53 games. He was claimed by Anaheim in the Expansion draft in June 1993 and played a regular shift in 1993-94 before he was sidelined with a serious shoulder injury.
After undergoing reconstructive surgery, King was forced to miss the entire 1994-95 season. He returned to play seven games in 1995-96 but was eventually sent down to the AHL where he scored 40 goals for the Baltimore Bandits. After two more minor pro seasons, King retired in 1998.
