Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Scott King
Goalie Scott King played two games for the Detroit Red Wings in the early 1990s. Along the way he was a solid player in college and later enjoyed a fair bit of success in the minor leagues.

The native of Thunder Bay, Ontario travelled west as a teenager to play for the Vernon Lakers of the BCJHL. After a solid performance in 1985-86, King was chosen 190th overall in the NHL Entry Draft. This was followed by four years of starring at the University of Maine. King was named to the Hockey East second all-star team in 1989 and the first team the following year.

King's three pro seasons were spent almost exclusively in the AHL and ECHL. He looked steady when called upon to play parts of two games for the Red Wings but the organization was looking at Tim Cheveldae and Chris Osgood as its netminders of the future. King retired in 1993 on a high note after recording a 26-11-7 won-lost-tied mark for the ECHL's Toledo Storm. After leading the club to the Ryder Cup championship, he was named to the league's second all-star team.
