Meet A Maverick 2013: Colt King

December 14, 2013

By Fred Liggett

If the Second time through the CHL for Left Winger Colt King is anything like the first then Missouri Mavericks fans are in for a real treat this season. Kinger as he is called by his teammates made quite an impression in playing 46 games in his first season as a maverick a year ago. The 30 year old did even better in the post season scoring 7 times in 13 games.

The veteran is now in his 6th CHL season and 10 season of pro hockey. Before coming to Missouri, King suited up for the Rapid City Rush and Rocky Mountain Rage in the Central Hockey League. King has also spent time playing in England and the AHL.

Kinger’s favorite sports team is the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League baseball. The Thunder Bay, Ontario native admits He loves to follow all Canadian teams. Still rooting him on from home is his mom, dad and four brothers. So far Colt’s favorite hockey memory is being drafted into the National Hockey League. Another pretty awesome hockey memory for him was winning the CHL championship while at Rapid City.

King quickly admits that you can’t duplicate that feeling and hopes to experience it again while with Missouri. Colt first put on a pair of skates at the age of 3.

If not in pro hockey today King would like to be a pro baseball player. The Game of baseball is Colts second love. King’s biggest career goal is to one day play in the NHL. While on those long bus rides in the CHL King quietly admits he enjoys telling someone to open a window and then he watches a movie the rest of the time.

If a movie was ever made of his life Colt feeling there is no one good looking enough to play him in such a movie. King does love to cook though he does not have a personal favorite dish. King likes to dabble and try different creations. Following his playing days Colt hopes to be remembered as a power forward who scored goals. King’s favorite area of Kansas City is the Westport area which he feels is "pretty fun". King is quick to add that Kansas city is a Beautiful city.

The Missouri Mavericks are back on home ice Saturday night when they host the Allen Americans.

The fun starts inside the Independence Events Center when the puck drops at 7:05pm.
