Colt King of the Rapid City Rush Was a 6-Team OHLer*

colt king chl rapid city rushA few weeks ago, we put up two posts about two different Ontario Hockey League alumni that had played on six different teams during their OHL careers. We thought we’d found another, but it wasn’t so – sort of.

Colt King indeed played on 6 different teams during his OHL career but two of them were technically the same franchise. Colt was a North Bay Centennial that moved along with the team to Saginaw for the 2002-03 season when they became the Spirit.

Colt is currently playing for the Rapid City Rush of the Central Hockey League. Originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche, his 2 games with the Rochester Americans of the AHL this season constitutes the highest level of hockey he has achieved.

King’s OHL career spanned from 1999-00 to 2003-04. His first two full seasons were played with the Guelph Storm but then the travelling began. He split 2001-02 between Guelph and North Bay. 2002-03 was split between Saginaw and the Oshawa Generals. 2003-04 was split between the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Sarnia Sting.

Colt’s best season in professional hockey came in 2008-09 with the Rocky Mountain Rage of the CHL when he put in 68 points on 28 goals and 40 assists in 61 games. He also brought toughness to the Rage that season with 168 minutes in the penalty box.
