Leafs' K.King out 2-6 weeks
Fri. Dec. 11, 1998.

TORONTO - Durable left wing Kris King will miss two to six weeks for the first-place Maple Leafs after fracturing his hand in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers. King suffered the injury while blocking a shot. He will be re-examined next week, according to a Toronto spokesman, who could not confirm which hand was injured. The 32-year-old King had played in all 109 games since joining the Maple Leafs as a free agent in 1997. He had missed a total of 10 games over the past eight seasons, including just three since the 1993-94 campaign. The feisty King has just two goals and one assist with 52 penalty minutes in 27 games this year but is regarded as one of the team's best forecheckers.
