Former Manitoba Moose and Vancouver Canucks forward Jason King may be retiring from the game, but he won't be going far.
On Friday, the St. John's IceCaps annouced that King, 31, would be their new assistant coach.
King, who hails from Corner Brook, Newfoundland, joined the IceCaps in their inaugural year. He played 79 games with the squad, racking up 23 goals and 22 assists in that time.
King is well known to Winnipeg fans, having played with the Manitoba Moose from 2002 to 2006. A former Canucks draft pick, he also cracked the NHL for 59 games with Vancouver and Anaheim during his playing career.
