The forward did not have to ring twice. In this case, Dwight King only had to knock once.

Last week King was able to break the news to Manchester Monarchs teammate Jordan Nolan that they were both being called up from the minors by the Kings with a quick knock on his door.

"He said to wake up, pack up. We're leaving in an hour," Nolan said in El Segundo on Tuesday after the Kings' practice.

Said King: "He'll get to remember that forever. His first call-up, I was the guy to tell him. It's a good story."
