NEW YORK (Dec. 2, 2003) - Right wing Jason King of the Vancouver Canucks, who led all rookies in goals (eight) and points (11) and tallied points in 10 of 14 games, has been named NHL Rookie of the Month for November.

King edged New York Islanders forward Trent Hunter (6-4--10 in 13 games), Carolina Hurricanes forward Eric Staal (4-4--8 in 15 games) and Edmonton Oilers defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron (3-5--8 in 14 games) for the honors.

Teaming with Daniel and Henrik Sedin on what has been dubbed the “Mattress Line - two twins and a King,” the 22-year-old Corner Brook, Newfoundland native led the Canucks in goal-scoring, including seven goals in a seven-game stretch from Nov. 3-15. King recorded the first two-goal game of his NHL career and was named ‘first star’ of the Canucks’ 5-1 victory over Detroit Nov. 3 and had single tallies in victories over Nashville (4-3, Nov. 5), Minnesota (4-3, Nov. 8) and Montreal (5-2, Nov. 25).

Selected by the Canucks in the seventh round of the 2001 Entry Draft - 212th overall - King went on to score a league-leading 63 goals in his final year of junior hockey with QMJHL Halifax in 2001-2002 and notched 20 goals in 67 games with AHL Winnipeg in 2002-2003, his first professional season. King also had an eight-game stint with the Canucks last season, recording two assists.
