Capitals acquire enforcer D.J. King from Blues for prospect Stefan Della Rovere

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have acquired enforcer D.J. King from the St. Louis Blues for prospect Stefan Della Rovere.

The deal was announced Wednesday.

King, a left-winger, has spent four seasons with the Blues but has played in only 13 games over the last two seasons because of injuries.

He dislocated his shoulder in the 2008-09 opener, and managed only 12 games last season due to a broken finger.

King has amassed 185 penalty minutes along with four goals and five assists over 101 NHL games.

Della Rovere, a left-winger, was a seventh-round draft pick by the Capitals in 2008.
